It does in the twisted logic of Beeper Mania. I called for a price quote and was told $23.99 for one years service.
I asked for a complete and revealing price, since I had just arrived from out of the country. I entered this store, and Rafael the attendent reconfirmed this price and wrote it on a standard Beeper Mania customer service agreement, which I signed.
The following morning, the same Rafael tacked on a $9.95 charge to make sure I would renew the contract after one year, and a surprise 18.5% tax that everyone knew about. Total came to $42.00. I complained that this was misleading, and my signed copy stated $23.99, to no avail.
There were three staffers on duty and they ganged up on me, having detected I was in a rush and did not have time to recontact another pager company.
By the way, the woman present actually stated This is what all the pager companies do.
If anyone else got caught in this ugly trap, please contact me pending investigation and possible class action.
