Popular Mechanics - Cashew Biometric wallet

No support of any kind, The merchandise does not work as described, essentially I bought a $100 paperweight. I just want the thing to work correctly the website is poorly designed nothing works on the website for the cashew. Can I please get some help. This is really calls for me to take this to the BBB, And I have absolutely no problem doing that. I bought this wallet on good faith through your website however I was not to understand that there was gonna be zero to zilch support of any kind the chat link does not work it has an automated response. And in addition the paperweight has lights that blink on it when you touch them. Come on guys you got to do better than this at least test the stuff out for a couple of months

Desired outcome: Fix the bugs on the website, and make my merchandise work

I bought a your Popular Mechanics car cover at Ollie's Outlet in Fredericksburg Virginia.
It 'stated on the box that Size XL will fit over a 1971 Monte Carlo, (SKU 663040). It is too
small . The sizing information on the box is not correct. ( Trn 09573, Str:124 5/19/20, 12:35pm sales ticket.
Any help in finding a cover that correctly fits my 1971 Monte Carlo would be appreciated.

Popular Mechanics - 1st subscription still not received since january

Case id: [protected]

Subscribed early 2018 and until today haven't receive even th 1st copy.
Repeated emails to courtney, hallie and marolynn unfortunately ended with deaf ears.
This subscription is a huge loyal 3-years but after 6 month, I am beginning to regret this move.
For all you new subscribers, I advice you just stick to the 6month or yearly subscription so you won't fall into this trap.

Popular Mechanics - hurst publications

I have tried to stop any and all regular and "gift" subscriptions to no avail! There is no published phone number to make a human contact with.
A bill keeps being sent to me for "gift renewals" that I do not want!
How do I stop this? Customer service is a joke in that it will not service a customer in any way! I will never subscribe with hurst again!


Popular Mechanics - magazine subscription

I am receiving 2 issues each month due to receiving past due billing notices from popular mechanics. Please discontinue and refund these 2 subscriptions

Popular mechanics and hearst should be a trusted magazine publisher. These deceptive past due notices and required continuous subscription are a scam.
