I placed an ad in Craig's list to sell my 2008 Chrysler Sebring. A few days after I placed the ad in Craig's list I got calls from this marketing company stating they had "approved" "prospective" buyers interested in my car and if I agreed to their advertising my car they would match their buyers with me.
A fast talking sales representative called back and convinced me the only thing it would cost me if I sold my car myself was $29 out-of-pocket. I was guaranteed if the car didn't sell I would only be out $29 of the $249 the service cost. Hence, I allowed myself to be scammed, ripped off, lied to and gave AMS my credit card number.
They also begged me to list the car for more than I had it on Craig's list for. I didn't want to do that at all, but they insisted. The car was listed for $7,000 on Craigh's list and they wanted me to list it for $8,000+, but I refused. [continued below]....
..... Instead we agreed on $7,295 to cover the $249 cost of their scam service!
In less than a week I received seven phone calls on my car from my Craig's list ad and the second person that came to see the car bought it CASH! I've tried for 3 days to cancel this service and my car was still up on their website today. I've asked nicely for a refund and now I find out I have to wait the full 90 days and send the notorized document in only between March 25, 2013 and April ?, 2013.
This is the dumbest and most ridiculous thing I have ever fallen for. It's a bunch of high pressure marketing people that do not have any "prequalified" "preapproved" prospective car buyers in the system. It's a pack of lies. The ad they copied into their service is MY CRAIG'S list ad verbatim. It even shows the car is listed for $7,000 OBO in my Craig's listing.
Whatever you do, don't fall for this. It's going to take me 3 months to get $220 back for a stupid mistake I made. However, I will contact my bank and have them remove this charge. It's unethical, unprofessional and a scam. Thank you.
