H.A.M. members can be found in the H.A.M. Hideout northwest of Lumbridge. They are part of the Humans Against Monsters group, as such, they believe humans to be superior over what they view as inferior races. They are low ranking members that follow the orders of high-ranked members such as the H.A.M. Deacon, Sigmund, and Johanhus Ulsbrecht.
Players with 15 Thieving may pickpocket female members, while players with level 20 can pickpocket male members, receiving 18.5 and 22.2 experience respectively. If you are caught pickpocketing multiple times there is a chance you may be beaten unconscious and are taken outside of the main area. When players awaken they may find themselves inside a jail cell with Jimmy the Chisel or may find themselves thrown outside of the H.A.M. Hideout. A player can reduce their chances of being put in jail or thrown outside by wearing H.A.M. robes. A full H.A.M. set is not required to see some benefit as each piece reduces your chances of being ejected. However, wearing H.A.M. robes does not increase the chances of successful pickpockets.
They are a popular source of easy clue scrolls for low-level and Ironmen accounts due to their low requirements. Ironmen also benefit from buttons which are used in Animal Magnetism and rusty swords used for the Easy Ardougne Diary. During the Death to the Dorgeshuun quest the chance to receive H.A.M. robes is considerably higher. 
While wearing the Thieving cape, players will always succeed when pickpocketing H.A.M. members. This makes it very easy to acquire easy clue scrolls.
With differing level requirements, the success rates for H.A.M members are different between Men and Women. With the addition of the Hard Ardougne Diary, this chance gains a 10% bonus. The theoretical experience rate for Male H.A.M Members is slightly higher than their female counterpart; though this is likely to be offset by the increased odds of being caught upon failing and thrown out of the compound, or locked up in jail.
Drop rates estimated based on 7,042,740 pickpockets from the Old School RuneScape Wiki drop log project, unless otherwise cited.
