Creative Home Arts Clubunfair request for payment!

1

I received a book from this company. The invoice clearly states, "If you do not want this, SIMPLY use enclosed label, and send back, and you will not be billed". I received my third and "final" warning to send them the money, or return the book. I returned the book the day after I received it. I will be contacting a lawyer on this matter. I too tried to reach them by phone, and was put on hold, "due to a large amount of calls", and was not able to get through.

    This whole club thing is a scam.

    I also sent back a book, and still get "nastygrams" and phone calls for the money.

    I'm glad I googled this club. I'm kind of on the other side of things in that the club representative for the testers contacted me in regards to supplying products to be tested (We manufacture crafting supplies). If we gave them $3000 worth of product we could use the testers responses and they'll link to our website. Big deal! Funny thing about it was that I mentioned it to my wife. She thought the club sounded familiar and looked it up. She had signed up at one time and cancelled/didn't renew. She sent them two notices of cancellation and they sent her a letter that said, ""We're sorry to say this, but you've left us with no choice but to suspend all of your Club benefits. Payment for your membership in the Creative Home Arts Club is now more than three months overdue.". They even threatened a collection agency. They probably try and scare people into payment making people worry about collectors or their credit being affected. What a horrible tactic and scam. Crafters are the nicest people on earth and what a thing to do to take advantage of them. It's dirty money and I hope whoever is in charge gets what's coming to them for the grief they cause.

    Today I am sending in my request for resignation from Creative Home Arts Club. I too sent in the initial payment for a 'membership'. To date I have received one magazine and was sent a book that I did not order and did not want. I sent the book back, and have received several invoices telling me that my payment for the book was overdue. I returned the invoices noting that I had returned the book. I recieved another invoice telling me that my account would go to 'collection' if I did not pay. In order too keep my good credit rating from being attacked, I paid for the book.
    The original material did not mention anything about a 'book club' or a 'life time membership' and the extra costs for such. Had I known that this was a 'book club' I would never have joined as I know what book clubs are like that send unordered books and then will not remove charges when the books are sent back. This instance proves the rule all over again.
    Before you join or send in any money, be sure to read ALL of the comments regarding this rip off.
