I know what Jason means. I am still a member and am included on the pending lawsuit. Hair Club For Men does not tell you everything upfront. When you come in the second time they put all of the monthly fee's, tip's,and products on you. By this time it is to late and you have to sign a contract.

On the first visit you throw $1,800 in to become a member and it is not refundable. They tell you that is the only cost except for every three months you should come in to have your wig fixed for $75.00. On the second visit you find out it is a lie and your wig will cost you hundreds every month. It is a very unethical business. Is unethical agaisnt the law? Can be. Right now thier is enough on them to start one.

As for the person who left the rebuttal for Jason, what would you know? You are not a member and never were. As for you comment about Stephanie and Beth, he was referring to another Rip off Report from ealier in the year. I am actually clueless to why you are ripping on his report. As for the email address, it is allowed because there is a pending lawsuit. Yeah, some of these reports actually have lawsuits Mr. Know it all from South Carolina. I have an idea. You take care of Columbia, SC and the Past and Current Hair Club Members will take care of Minneapolis, MN.

As for your question into why people are still members is because some of us are locked in a big contract.

hcfmw toronto canada lies,cheats and wrongfull accusations based on fear of law suites

AUTHOR: amir - (Canada)

hi,after filing months of many complains to managements i was finally signed out base on bad behavior and harassments which to date refuse to mention name of the so called victim! i have an idea whom they talking about as she was whisked away just a week before my cancelations to another branch,get the picture? this i want you to pay attention because will be use in court of law,just two weeks before my cancellation she sat next to me,apologizes to me for instigating all these as she puts it,with her hand on her heart she said; amir i'm very sorry for the way i spoke to you weeks ago,was my fault, did not know it will come to this,

i missed you,i was gonna come and talk to you for past five weeks,was worried how you will react after what i've done.also she admitted that amir you are right chris another colleague of her has been making homophobic,derogatory remarks about you! i go why?,she said he is jealous of you and the way i pay attention to you..this the truth,the whole truth anf nothing but the truth so help me GOD...now what happened a week later and why she is quite knowing that very incident in which she admitted her wrongs and apologized for has been used to signed me out? beats me? so they kept me out with an already old ,deteriorating hair piece and nowhere to go. refused to respond non whatsoever.they kept the rest of my money,they kept my styling products which are more than 18 bottles and are paid for in advanced..of course  those who know me they can't even believe what manager and her(sales person) have done again.hey this is nothing new .

they done it before and i know all about it! i have a good friendship with so many of those who work there it is based on shared respect.i just don't know why? was this an act of a really jealouesy manager too? i asked her about him too she nodded puts her head down.i got the message. when booth manager and her as sales manager have apologies in fact manager told me he is going to discipline her and told her to stay away from my business here, and as soon as i faxed a letter explaining on going issues with their WIG and melting tape and liquid glue and demanded refund they came with this conspiracy.like i said why she was immediately transferred just a week before? my question to booth manager and sales person is HAVE YOU SHAME?

In Response to The Toronto Guy

AUTHOR: Kevin - (U.S.A.)

Like these other victims of Hairclub's lies and ripoffs, I too learned from my mistake.
The victims and I complained because Hairclub is out to rip-off people and not to help them.
In respond to the Toronto dude comment... If you like being an idiot and be rip-off by Hairclub then thats your problem. I dont want to hear your pro-Hairclub comments.

HCW Canada

I would say to the Canadian guy I wished your hair would fall out but obviously it already has. Anyone can go to Candada but try to get back and your stuck. But that is for a good reason, keep the hockey playing riftraft in.

Hey I speak Canadian: "I surrender!"

Inside Information on HCM in Minneapolis ..sell, sell, and sell

AUTHOR: Amy - (U.S.A.)

I used to work for Bosley in Phoenix Arizona. This place is similar to Hair Club For Men. I moved to Minneapolis a little over a year ago (to be with my Boyfriend) and I worked for Hair Club on Xerxes ave.. While training in at this place I was told to sell, sell, and sell. What ever it takes. I know one thing, Hair Club For Men does not pay thier stylists! This is the reason we push for ecentric tips from our customers. If you do not tip us or tip us anything under 15% we would do a bad job on your BIO-Matrix unit (Wig). We had one stylist who used to brag about conning her clients into upgrades. Her name was Amy also.

Anyway my point is that Hair Club For Men does do many unethical things in Minneapolis. I do not know how they run it in Toronto or anyplace else but this is the way Minneapolis works. I no longer work for HCM. They really ticked me off one day. This is not the reason I am writing this either. I was checking out the rip off reports on Regis Hairstyling when I decided to check former employers on here. I read all of these mens stories and do know how they feel and it is a shame.

The unethical values of HCM are terrible. I think they should also tell the Men of HCM that the Hair Pieces they wear are full of dead lice when we recieve them at the office before we clean them up. Another thing I would like to tell the men that go to HCM is that most of you are good looking guys who are wasting your money by putting on the BIO Matrix. By the way men it is obviouse you are wearing the hair piece. We are trained when we see any client that thier hair looks great. If anybody wants to know more about this company just write your question in this report and I will answer it someday. Men, just shave your head. Baldness is sexy.

I'm a Client of HCM now HCFMW always up-front and honest with me.

AUTHOR: A Client - (Afghanistan)

This is in response to Jason & Mark's rip-off report.

Guys I'm currently a member of the HCM in Toronto. These people were always up-front and honest with me. From the begining they told me the pros & Cons of a hair replacement system. Sure it's not my own hair but their a heck of alot better than the other little hair replacement companies out there. I just joined a program with them, BUT I didn't have to. I decided to go on the program because I'm a very active guy and will need more than 1 hair piece in a year. If you signed an agreement than live up to the fact that you had every opportunity not to sign it; furthermore you could have gone somewhere else but didn't. It's people like you guys that I hate sitting beside when I go to their office. Never happy with anything anyone does for you. Mabe it's different in the US but I doubt it, you guys are wimps and complainers that I wish were on the other team in a Hockey game so I could smash into the boards and listen to you whine
Gotta go your a waste of my time,
P.S. Mark please leave HCM

I Think My Rebuttal Was Completely Valid

AUTHOR: P - (U.S.A.)

Mark,

I had to respond to your rebuttal because I am the person that responded to Jason on his recent HCM report. You asked, "what would I know?" To be honest, not a d**n thing based on what Jason posted. My gripe was that his post was too vague and didn't give any specifics on what the scam involves. You may be in on the scam because you are also a victim, but not all of us are. We're not all mind readers and not all of us have ESPN. lol

And, just to clarify, I wasn't taking up for HCM. And no, I'm not a member. I've seen their commercials and thought that if ever I was in the situation of needing a form of hair replacement, I'd check them out. Fortunately, that's not yet the case.

Your post gave clarification as to how you felt you were scammed. For that I commend you. However, it is my opinion, that people who take the time to fill out a report should give their post more thought before hitting the submit button. So many reports here deal with emotions instead of facts.

This forum is a great way to keep people informed, but if you can't be specific with your gripe, then you are wasting people's time.

It was my opinion that Jason needed to be more
specific for his post to have more credibility.
Mark, I could post that you are a no good, dirty, rotten, lying, cheating, tax evading, scum bag, but without specifics or proof, what credibilty would my post have to get others who read this forum to believe me?

In closing, don't go getting your panties in a wad because the rest of us "clueless" readers want more details. I don't think that's asking too much.

Signed,
Mr. Know It All From S.C.
