Scam Invoices for TROUT magazine

Some Trout Unlimited members recently   received an invoice from Platinum Publishing Service located in White City,   Oregon, for renewal of TROUT magazine at a cost of $79.95. This is not a legitimate invoice   from Trout Unlimited. Click   here to view an example of the notice in question.TU is in no way affiliated with Platinum   Publishing. If you receive an invoice from Platinum Publishing for a renewal   of your TROUT magazine, please disregard that invoice, but rest assured and TU’s Woolly Bugger, WV, post office box are fully operational,   secure and ready to handle your membership dues and contributions.

TROUT magazine is a benefit of TU   membership and included in your membership renewal. As always, you may renew   your TU membership via our official, secure website at Or more directly at   TU regular membership remains $35 per year.

We are not clear at this time how this   company obtained mailing addresses for TU members, but we suspect they have   been taken from fly fishing industry magazine lists that Platinum Publishing   features on their website. We will be initiating legal notification to   Platinum Publishing to immediately cease-and-desist this unauthorized   activity of billing for TROUT magazine.

Thank you for your continued membership   support.
