This so called charity called me a couple of years ago and sold me some plastic bags worth maybe $15 - $20 for $89.95 ("for a good cause").  I may have neglected to pay and received a letter asking me to pay the bill.   I started to get the feeling that it was some kind of ripoff and ignored the letter.  I recently received a phone call and was convinced that I had to pay up. 

I gave the caller a verbal check (check no. and routing info).  He called a few days later and said they needed the actual physical check and gave an address in Florida to send it to.  I then looked up Helping Hands of America, which is a legitimate charity based in Massachusetts.   I called them and they said they have no address in Florida and that should not send them the money. 

I have written a letter to them saying that they will not be getting a check for $89.95 from me.

#2 Author of original report

Name used is Helping Hands of Hope

AUTHOR: Gary - (United States of America)

I was mistaken about the name this company is operating under!  I may have been told that the name was HH of America at one time, but it is apparently called HH of Hope. There is already one complaint about this company on this site.

I found that the company operated in Arizona until the FTC filed a "Complaint for Permanent Injunction and Other Equitable Relief" in May of 2008.  This company in now operating out of Florida.  They have used several different names with the same scam.
