Junk Mail galore,
This review is from: National Geographic (Magazine)I will no longer subscribe to National Geographic. This year we started getting unsolicited junk from either National Geographic or their "partner" companies masquerading as National Geographic and then billing us for the DVDs, maps, etc. I expressed my concerns in a letter to National Geographic about the problem and they did not bother to contact me. Of course now they are sending these bogus bills to their "collection department." No more National Geographic magazine EVER!

you can request not to receive junk mail at the time of subscription

Unfortunately I had no idea this option existed. After I contacted them, they promised not to further give out my information anymore, but I still get mail from those that already got their hands on it. It's extremely annoying.

Did you order from amazon or national geographic directly?

From a third party magazine seller. But I've ordered from them before without getting junk, and most of the junk I get is NG or nature related.

I made the mistake of doing the same thing. However, my subscription was directly with NG (i.e. not a third party like you), and I have received at least one type of junk mail from them or someone related to them EVERY SINGLE DAY for the last 4 or 5 weeks. I kid you not. This is absolutely ridiculous. I am now having the same issues you are with bogus bills and being charged for stuff I have no clue about. I also didn't know (or even see) there was an option to opt out when like an idiot I subscribed to this scam they call a magazine. Since I was a kid I'd hear about NG, and figured it was a respectable company. I had no idea National Geographic was scamming people.
