$1.6 billion in debt. They had no choice. Anything from Readers digest is a pure scam now.
The scam may be done for in the 'States, but they'll still be alive and kickin' right here at home.[...]
The Chapter 11 filing will apply only to the company's U.S. businesses. Operations in Canada, Latin America, Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia-New Zealand will not be affected.
Edit: Is it wrong that I laughed after realizing that Reader's Digest (and likely the scam-esque Sweepstakes, as well) are also run in Africa? The only way it could be funnier is if RD's African headquarters was in Nigeria.
