Some years ago I purchased a "LIFETIME" subscription to Handy Man Clubs of America Magazine and the supposed benefits that were to come with that... Apparently I'm dead because the lifetime magazine subscription ended... No word nothing, it just quit coming. I finally realized it had been several months since I had received an issue so I found the on the web and they are now some kind of fantasy sports club. Or at least that seems to be their focus. Everything on the site is pushing Scout.com.. I'm not interested in that.. did they get bought out by some other company who has...

I just received a collection notice saying I did not pay for a subscription from 2007! Are you kidding? I sat on hold with a collection agency for over 20 minutes to be asked repeatedly "are you going to pay." I explained the magazine was used by a business we used to own. We sold that business in 2009. I explained since that is over seven years ago I do not have those business records and I do not remember. You only have to Google this company to understand this is the way they operate....

I joined with a large fee to receive magazines for the rest of my life and to receive free products to test, write a report and then keep them. They showed all these tools you might get asked to test. I never got asked and I wonder if anyone was ever asked to test them.
Now they want to charge me a subscription fee as they said they have sent me my last issue....

Handyman Club Of America - Book Membership

I have been dealing with these people for quite a few years and was collecting some of the books. Over time I have asked them to stop sending the books and each time I talk to them they said they will. I have returned many books on 2-18-14 and again on 2-28-14. I continue to get billed for these books. I know it sometimes takes a while to get them credited to the account when I send them back so I waited until September and never saw them being credited to my account. On 9-12-14 I talked to Scott (They won't give you their last name) and he said he would stop the books and send me some return...

We were sent a 2011 Street Machine Calendar several months ago and we did not order the calendar so we will not pay for it. We keep getting bills for this and threating to turn this over to a collection agency. We called and got a return label to return the calendar and we did return it but keep getting bills and threating to turn over to a collection agency. WHY??????? If you did not receive the calendar that is not our fault-we returned it several months ago! We are not going to pay for the calendar because we did not order it. Will you please quit sending us things-stuff that we do not order....

Handyman Club Of America - North Dakota, Williston - continued billing for returned item

I accepted the first saw on an offer and paid for it but returned the second saw which was a folding landscape saw which I have several already. I have been billed several times after I wrote on the bill that the saw was returned by mail. I also found the saw that I did purchase did not preform as well as it was advertised. I did like the reverse draw onthe saw but the teeth broke off the blade while cutting relatively soft material. This offer is such a disappointment that I am considering canceling my membership with the club....
