They backed into a parking spot and opened the back hatch. They had at least 8 or 10 large boxes of these AudioFile 583LR speakers in the back and a bunch of other boxes of stuff as well. I asked again if they were giving them away or if they were trying to sell them. The older guy of the two was a real smooth, fast talking kind of guy.
He said no, no he couldn't give them away, that he had to get something for them. He said his boss ordered to many or gave him to many by accident for delivery, or something like that. That was his story anyway. He showed me a laminated sheet with pictures and info that had a price of somewhere around $1495.00 per speaker. He seemed to be a legit guy that was just trying to get whatever he could for these "high definition" speakers.
He took them out of the box and showed me the various features. He said he was trying to get at least $500 per speaker or $1000 for the pair. I said I don't have that kind of money and that I'm not really in the market for speakers, so I started walking slowly towards my car, but he persisted, and eventually talked me into buying a pair.
I feel like the ultimate dumb-a*s now, not only because I let him talk me into it, but I paid more than any other person I've read about; I paid $600 for the pair and for icing on the cake, he also talked me into giving him another $20 for beer money.
I truly thought that I was getting a good deal and that even though I didn't want to keep the speakers for myself, that I might be able to sell them and make a few bucks. I've never been conned so bad in my life and to say that I'm upset is the biggest understatement in the universe. After I got home and read about the scams these guys do all over the country, I immediately got in my car and went back to where I bought them. I drove around the city for about two hours looking for these guys, but I'm sure they are probably long gone and have moved on to another city or state.
If anyone finds these guys, I would like to be the first to know. I will offer a worthy reward if someone tells me where these @#$%$# crooks are. Contact me by using the rebuttal box. Live and learn I guess.
