ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Minnesota’s attorney general is suing a magazine sales company alleging deceptive sales tactics.

Lori Swanson filed a lawsuit Thursday that accuses Your Magazine Service Inc. and owner Wayne Dahl Jr. of charging people hundreds of dollars for magazine packages after tricking them into providing billing information.

The lawsuit says the company’s employees would call consumers and pose as their existing magazine provider and offer a phony credit on their account. Swanson says the employees would then enroll the consumers in magazine packages that cost up to nearly $1,000.

The lawsuit filed in Carver County District Court seeks civil penalties, restitution, and injunctive relief. The attorney general says Dahl moved recently to Loxahatchee, Florida from Eden Prairie. Dahl’s phone number is not listed.
