A now-defunct company that sold magazine subscriptions on the auction site eBay has agreed to refund thousands of dollars to Washingtonians who never got their publications.
Cheapest-Magz, run by Wilmyr Dagohoy and Eireen Ejem-Dagohoy, has agreed to pay $15,000 in refunds, a fine and attorneys' fees.
The company, initially based in Bremerton, sold thousands of subscriptions to magazines like Newsweek, Oprah, Playboy, TV Guide and Wired. In thousands of cases, the state attorney general's office says, the magazines never came.
"A promise to deliver is a promise to deliver," said Attorney General Rob McKenna.
Customers who paid for subscriptions with Cheap-Magz will be contacted within 40 days and sent a check equal to what they paid. Anyone with questions should call the AG's Consumer Resource Center at 1-800-551-4636.
