    WARNING! You can NEVER cancel this subscription.

    Mystery sleuth here. I have a master’s degree in English and a BA in Literature. I teach Sherlock Holmes to upper-level students. I thought this series might be a fun way to end our literary journey of mystery. I was incorrect.

    When I was ready to end my subscription, I found it impossible. Literally impossible. For several months I got the runaround. Their textbot couldn’t solve my issue; then, their online chat couldn’t help me. Their “steps for cancelation” were not helpful either. I was starting to think this elaborate cancelation process was being done on purpose just so they could get another monthly payment, and I was correct.

    After waiting about 30 minutes to talk to a real person, the exchange went a little something like this:
    Killer: How can I help you?
    Me: I need to cancel my account.
    Killer: What is your email on the account?
    me: email*******
    Killer: I’m sorry we don’t have you in our database.
    Me: Yes you do because you keep charging me every month after I have already “canceled” my account about 4 times using your methods.
    Killer: We can’t cancel something we don’t have.
    Me: Here is my full name and home address that you have been sending boxes to.
    Killer: We can’t find you.
    Me: I just canceled my credit card to cancel this ridiculous subscription. When I get a new credit card, and I have re-add all my other mandatory subscriptions like medicine refills, student payments, my kids’ school lunch accounts, my gym, my phone bill, prime, apple music- all of them, one at a time, with the time I don’t have, every time I have to do this, I’m going to write another horrible review. I’m going to keep doing this because you people couldn’t just simply cancel my subscription. You made it harder on purpose just to keep getting payments. What you are doing is wrong, so I will let as many people know about it as possible.

    Now you know. It isn’t worth it!

    Rip off…Be aware that if you give this as a gift, Hunt a Killer will charge your giftee’s credit card $165 for another subscription after the gift is complete and refuse to credit even if you notify them right away that you do not, nor ever, wanted to renew. Buyer beware.

    Would have liked to try this but when they decide to release a Canadian version with free shipping.

    This subscription is one of my faves!! It is really challenging and build the story over each box, so you fall deeper and deeper down the rabbit hole each month. The first box has different items, not “just paper” or “trash” that begin to introduce you to the story. The story plot is told through the items and each month answers questions but will raise others. Sometimes there will be more questions than revelations. Nothing is “laid out simple” with HAK. The best way to describe it is that they don’t “hold your hand”. The point is to be challenging and it isn’t for those who need instant gratification. I spend hours on each box, researching online, solving ciphers, making connections, etc. It is a slow process, so those that appreciate a slow-burn mystery, loves a challenge and has patience, it is well worth it. They also have premium cases where all items are sent at once, which are also immensely fun. HAK just released a new type of mystery recently as well called Empty Faces which is structured like the monthly HAK but is for those who love horror and the paranormal. I do both HAK and EF and absolutely adore what this company is doing. The online community for each sub and each premium case is phenomenal and really good at giving guidance, without spoiling anything, which is super awesome. Definitely check out HAK and/or EF and you will NOT be disappointed!!!

    Beware! It is near impossible to cancel your subscription. I had to go so far as the cancel my credit card, in order to get them to stop pulling money out of my account.

    Figured it was worth $30 to try. What you get is a couple of scraps of paper, a notebook, and a piece of trash. There isn’t any clear storyline or even any clear hints, and the disorganized, poorly moderated online community which is supposed to help you. There’s no direction, no plot, and no mention of a murder or a crime you’re trying to solve. I felt completely ripped off. There weren’t any objects, just paper, and no story I even felt interested in researching. Oh, and the first story takes place over 5 boxes, so you wouldn’t solve anything anyway. I might try a different mystery box, but this is NOT worth your money or time. Skip it! My favorite part? When I voiced my opinion on the Hunt a Killer Facebook group – they removed me from the group! Can they not take criticism from their customers? How petty.

    It may be $30 US for a monthly subscription but at $25 US for shipping, this means its almost double the price. I’m in Australia and this is $71 AU a month – just too expensive to consider, which is a shame because I was definitely going ahead until I saw the cost of shipping
