    HandyMan Club of America / Scout.comLife membership

    I subscribed to Handyman Club for 12 years, and then and paid for a lifetime membership. I have been a paid life member since 1997 and a volunteer product tester. The organization had no problem taking my money and promised a lifetime of magazines focused on handy-craft skills, tools, and the like. After a relatively short time all that stopped and I was told my membership was now in Scout. I have no real interest in sports and find no redeeming value with Scout. I requested a refund of my membership fees and I was refused, telling me I have access to Scout. I believe robbed, disregarded, and frankly disrespected by this group. I believe this warrants a class-action lawsuit.

        I signed up as a lifetime member many years ago and for a long time I received the magazine and other material from the club but then all of a sudden it stopped and I have not received anything for a long time. I enjoyed the magazine and purchased items from the club and want to again receive the magazine and be able to purchase items. Since somebody broke into my garage and stole all my tools I need to replace them.

          Please start sending my magazines to me again, since I bought this subscription I have only received about 5 years worth of magazines, definitely no my moneys worth. I actually had another jeff forster in my neighborhood who got on the web site and changed the address so he was getting my magazines. I got the membership package with the jacket and coupons.

                I paid the fees to become a lifetime member and recieve a monthly magazine and new products to try. I don't think I ever received any products to try -- just my "free gifts." received the monthly magazine for awhile and then nothing at all. What happened to this company? Can I get a refund for my fees? don't remember the exact amount but at least $200.

                  I was receiving your magazine for a few years after I had signed up and paid for a lifetime membership with a one time payment of $500.00 which was supposed to be the last payment that I would ever have to pay and for the last several years i have not received the magazine or any correspondence from you. I tried to hook up with you a couple of years ago unsuccessfully.
                  I need to be brought up to date and start getting your magazine with no further charges, for life!
                  you sure make it hard to get in contact with a live person to have verbal conversation. a good phone number would be helpful.

                          No services from Handyman club. I have a life time membership. Everything has completely stopped. I have spent a lot of money with them, and I Have not received anything in return. Is the handyman club still afloat or did they go belly up. Is this a scam that they have stolen thousands of dollars from the club members. Do they still solicit for new members.

                            HandyMan Club of America / Scout.comI have been a lifetime member since 2009: however, since they change over to scout, I have not been able to login.

                            My name is Arthur Meadows, I joined the handyman club back in 2009 as a Lifetime member; however, recently I am not recognized as a member. Once they changed over to Scout login I had a problem and that was rectified. I know that I have not logged in recently since attending school; however, I would like to know what happened to my membership?
                            I was also a member of the Trophy life membership since 2009, but since I was not able to login to the handyman club I have been totally upset!!!
                            Will someone tell me what is happening, my original email address was [protected]@hotmail.com: please advise!!!

                              I have been a Life member since Feb 1994. I have not heard from them in a few years now. To pay a lifetime membership I am supposed to receive the mag for life. Didn't happen so i would like to get my money back, they broke the agreement.
                              I have never had any problems with Handyman Club of America. I have had nothing but good luck the rest of the time. People who say it is a Scam or a Rip Off must not of stood with them very long. they would send me things to test. I loved writing the reports and following up to see my name.

                                  I have been a life member since July of 1998. Is there anywhere to go to view any of the magazines that were published?
                                  The last magazine that I got was the summer of 2014. I am recently retired and would like to get back into woodworking. I got a lot of great ideas from them and would like to review some of those tips and tricks.
                                  Is there anyone that can give me some info on this?
                                  I paid good money to become a life member. The least you can do is answer my question, Handyman Club of America
                                  This use to be a great club.

                                  Same here (life member since the early 90’s). It was a great club/ magazine. I don’t even understand what this “scout” stuff is... Even an e-zine (digital magazine) would’ve been nice. If they couldn’t afford printing a paper magazine. Where do we go from here? Probably nowhere..

                                    So,
                                    I see so many others complaining. I also was just cleaning up, and came across all of my paperwork. Master Life Member since Feb. 22, 2010 but NOTHING in years. If anyone has any way to contact these people, or EVER got any notification about their going out of business, I would love to hear about it!

                                    If you know of anything, ANYTHING at all that we can all do to reach out to the people that took over the club, or SCOUT.COM I would be REALLY interested in working to at least get a notification that they are officially NOT in business. If, however, the property and rights have been purchased by anyone then they should work with all of us lifetimers.

                                    Frustrated,
