Just a warning to anyone else...

After phone calls, emails and now a paypal dispute Contact! Magazine has not sent me copies of the back issues I ordered and paid for from their web site.

Even when asking the 'editor' directly if I should ever expect to get the back issues (he was mowing his lawn at the time) I was assured that they would be sent... that was a month ago.

I'd really rather have the back issues that report this, but just a warning to others... don't order back issues as they simply never return emails or mail the items in question.

I ordered some last year. I did get them. It did take several weeks. The newer ones are electronic and just require printing. The older ones require getting an old copy and copying it, which apparently is the time-suck, I was told.
I've ordered a few times over the years and I've always gotten my order.

Pat Panzera is a good guy. Sorry you're having a problem.
After I put in a paypal refund request the magazines showed up a week or so later. This was after multiple emails and phone calls.

I'm happy I got them, they are full of good dope, but this was a months long process for something so simple.

Since you did get your requested materials, and even kept your cash.
You may want to adjust the thread title to be more accurate.
