My wife bought me a NAFC lifetime gold *whatever* membership around 2012 as a gift. I don't know how much she paid, but I did get a hat, a knife and a rod reel combo. I got maybe one year of the print magazines before the mags stopped coming. Shortly afterwards, the...

Trophy Lifetime Member

Was a lifetime member @ $200.00- ponied up the additional money to become a Trophy member, because they put me @ the front of the line on field testing. Then WHAM!!! They closed their doors, field for bankruptcy, got sold to Scout, & then to CBS digital. When you purchase a company in bankruptcy, you take on their debt. We have a binding contract for a lifetime, or compensation should be delivered in the form of a refund, not an enhanced online content bunch of *** I expected a magazine every month, field testing, & the online stuff, not this pile of garbage.

User's recommendation: Stay away.

Self explanitory

To every person and business in the original December 2000/Jan 2001 edition of North American Fisherman, as well as BLP Studios, and North American Media Group Inc. and the Audit Bureau of Circulations and Mail agreement Number 141****. After *** my life over for the last few decades, I hope you're ready for the storm that's soon to be heading your way. I have enough evidence to launch the biggest lawsuit the world has ever seen, and I'm gathering things to do just that. All because Michael had to be a piece of shit. I told you not to push me.

User's recommendation: Run.

Fishing club disappeared with club members funds

After becoming a "Lifetime Member" and paying $350.00 club fee, I was disowned by club after few months for not upgrading to a higher club member fee.

To find out what happen

North American Fishing Club - To find out what happen
As I was looking through my cards I noticed my lifetime membership and though maybe they lost my address but actually they went belly up. I wish they would have at least had the courtesy to tell us something. I was actually hoping they had an app. They had some really good products .

User's recommendation: Belly up company.

Life membership fraud! Back in 1989 I, like a lot of others, I too signed up for a lifetime membership. After a short while the magazine just stopped coming. I called and was told they thought I died!

So I explained I was still living and would like to receive my magazine. I got a couple of copies then stopped again. I called they said we are not publishing it any more I COULD GO ONLINE AND READ IT JUST LIKE EVERYONE ESLE. So I feel I have been scammed! I thought Id just write them off until I saw this. I too want my membership dollars refunded.

User's recommendation: Stay away from NFAC!

Pissed off life member
