Handyman Club of America address is Georgetown. They have sent me three books along with request for payment even though I cancelled.

I paid $6.00 and change to send back the first one after cancelling but refuse to do the same with these two unopened ones I have just recently received.

If they want them they can come and get them or I will scratch out my name and drop the in the mailbox.
Or I will take them to court with me if they sue I will be counter sueing.

HOW COME THEY CAN THEY ARE STILL IN OPERATION???

    This is for Model Rectifier Corporation. They, last week, did me the great service of replacing the decals for a kit I purchased from them, they were also very helpfull in replacing a couple of parts that were missing from that same kit. I would recommend MRC for anyone who is looking for a supplier to meet their scale modeling needs.

    This isn't a complaint, I'm praising the Handy Man Club of America. They have, just a couple of months ago, rearranged my Lifetime Membership payments, they offered me a lower payment over a longer period of time. This offer has made it possible for me to continue ot be a Life Member in the club, where-as before I couldn't afford the membership payments. That and I just received an invoice stating that I didn't owe anything at the invoice date, they are trying, trying hard to do things the right way, give them a break willya!?!

    I also have received a collection letter from this club, they ignored my cancellation request. I am sending the club and collection co. a drop dead, certified letter w/ return receipt. Telling them to drop dead and do not contact me again. I will also contact the BBB and State attorney Generals office and Secretary of State office.
    This club is a scam from start to finish, we need to spread the word to friends and relatives.
    The States should put a stop to this type of theft, deception and criminal activity.

    This company promised free gifts tools and hardware items to try, which i could keep at no charge, all I received was threatening letter no contact numbers to talk to anyone anyone receiving anything from this company should return it with no postage, which they will have to pay, maybe a little piece of mind,

    I paid them for a 3 year membership and to date have not received any magazines, free trial products or anything else they said I would. What a rip-off.

    I was getting overwhelmed by material from the Handy Man Club after joining. I had also returned one of their books in the box per their instructions but still continued to get billed for it. I finally just paid for it. Shortly after I spoke with a representative and cancelled my membership. More than a year later I received a letter from a collection agency RMCB. I responded in writing per the instructions on the letter. I received another letter stating that I'd not responded. This time I responded via their automated phone system. Then I begin to receive "reactivation invitations" from the Handy Man Club again. Today I received a phone call from a Handy Man club solicitor offering to reinstate me at a discount. When I refused, he told me that my "membership is not cancelable". When I asked him to explain what that means he just kept repeating it. I tried to locate the Handy Man Club through the Better Business Bureau but can't find a record of them yet. They have been a night mare to deal with.

    Initial enrollment was $12.00 a year. The only thing they don't tell you is that the smallest enrollment is for a 2 year period. If you're going to have a club, then stick to what you say in your initial mailings. Quit trying to screw people. If they like your product, they will renew, if not, at least you were honest

    My son who is now 20 has been hassled by this company for 4 years to pay for a lifetime membership that he never agreed to, and we have never received services . They have now turned this over to a collection agency. The bill is for 300.00.

    Handy Man is full of bull__! They promise you free tool trials "and you keep the tools" LIARS!!! I don't know who is supposedly testing all these tools but it sure hasn't been me. It must be the higher ups or the social club. I seen a contest winner last week in the latest subscription and he won a few off brand tools, maybe thats what you mean by test the tools and you get to keep them. There should be a law against LIARS who push magazines and make promises they don't keep. Oh and by the way don't worry about "THIS IS YOUR LAST CHANCE TO BECOME A LIFETIME MEMBER, YOU HAVE BEEN SELECTED BY OUR MEMBER PANEL TO BECOME A LIFE TIME MEMBER" Who in the hell is your member panel I'm a member and I don't remember having any say in who was chosen to be a "LIFETME MEMBER.

    I withdrew my membership with Handy Man Club of America in 2006 because I was not happy with their cheeply made products and useless magazine. On Feb. 26, 2008 I get a notice from RMCB Collection Agency demanding $249.00 for a life membership I cancelled almost 2 years ago. Even after I cancelled the first time, Handy Man Club tried to reinstate my membership with out my authorization which I had to cancel a second time. I belong to Sears Handy Man club which is free to join and you get REAL savings and can purchase REAL tools that you can actually use.
