Respond To Complaint  
I haven't received most of the issues on time. I have complained enough to the company's email address with a series of mails running back and forth between me and the company. I was pained with the bureaucratic method of working where initially either of the email addresses ( / '' / were not holding accountability for the delay.

I was enticed into this subscription through their sweepstakes offer where their marketing strategy is to continuously entice the customers into buying different products which are cross sold by them. However to my amazement, after a series of marketing offers which was sent continuously for two months, I never heard about the sweepstakes and neither the winner!

Hallo Reliance One, I recived your Reader's Digest offer by post I m happy & i joint thier but i know this prosses so please sistem replai me

My husband is in the last stages of your sweepstakes. I have noticed umpteem times that you misspell his name and now it happens you have also given a wrong address which I will once and for all make it very clear to you. Please make a note of these & send me confirmation via this email address as he would like the Sweepstakes Committee to amend their records as well. Also please note that my husband does not have an email id & I, his wife, do all his correspondence for him. Until these corrections are made please note it will be very difficult for him to place orders for anything. Thanks.

i got the letter from you about some winning prizes and surprizes i can't understand what is actully pl contact me via mail or mobile no. is 9769145334 pl reply must as early as possible
I have subscribed from Jan 09 to Dec 09 and was promised a free Mystery Gift. I started a mail chain in Feb 09 and its still going on to receive my copies. Its really frustrating as I receive my copies after my mail them after three months of delay. I haven't been given the gift yet.

What I want to highlight here is there Readers Digest has never been like this before as I am a regular subscriber.

But in the year 2009, I am frustrated. Moving the office from Bombay to Noida cannot be said as I reason.
i got letter form you about i winning prizes .I didn't understand wht is it actualy plz contact me r mail me as early as possible my mobile no:9966500556
