Dear Handyman Club of America,
I am writing to you in regards to your deceptive practices. I have received notices for payment in the amount of $37.98 for a book entitled Landscape Structures and Decks (RE: Billing LMRN9862) that I never requested nor received. You have now referred this matter to a collection agency so in an effort to preserve my good credit I am hereby sending you payment in the amount of $37.98 so you will close this matter immediately. In addition, I am returning to you a book entitled Tools and Techniques that I also never requested from you, but I did previously send you payment for.
I joined your organization as a lifetime member in January of 2011. I sent you payment in the amount of $355.00. I received some low grade cheap Chinese tools, all of which I could have purchased from Harbor Freight Tools for much less than $100.00. My standards for tools that I purchase and use are much, much higher than the crap that you sent me.
I am hereby notifying you that I wish to cancel my membership (#30671010) effective immediately.
I will consider that I have been scammed for $355.00 and an additional $75.96 for two books that I never requested from you and one of which I never did receive. Considering the character of your organization I am relatively confident that I will never be reimbursed any part of the $430.96 that I have paid to your organization to date.
With hopes of receiving any restitution, I will be sending a copy of this letter to the Texas Attorney Generals Office, The Minnesota Attorney Generals Office and to the Better Business Bureau. In addition, I will be posting this letter and negative comments about your organization (the truth) to any and all consumer feedback websites that I can find in an attempt raise awareness about your deceptive practices so others will not fall prey to your scams.
