===================== NOW TO THE ORIGINAL REPORT THAT WAS FILED
Blue World Pools Biggest rip-off and scam going on today! Carson City Nevada
Like others, we saw the TV ad for a nice looking above ground pool costing $349 installed. We phoned & a rep was sent out to look at our property and figure on the set-up. My wife gave out some of our personal info on the first phone call. The sales person showed up, looked over the property & began her pitch. Her name is Christine Elliott & she works the Midwest.
We told her we were interested in the Econoline model for $349. Right away she told us there was a delivery fee of $369. She also said this model was a "temporary" pool and probably would only last one or two years. She then started trying to sell us the higher priced models.
Since we are on a fixed income we told her there was no way we could pay $16,000 for a pool. She then told us if we would let people come look at our pool, they would knock off $2,000. I asked what the total pay-off price was and what the interest rate was. She got on the phone to a supervisor in Atlanta and he told me the interest was 21% and the payoff for a 3 year loan would be around $26,000.
I told my wife & the sales person that I was totally against buying this pool & putting up my property as collateral for the financing.
My wife went against my advice & signed the contract after the guy in Atlanta lowered the price to $8,000. Payments to be $212 for 36 months. None of this was spelled out in the contract, only figures on a scratch pad. We were told that we had 3 days to cancel the contract if we wanted to.
My wife called Atlanta the next day to cancel the contract & was told the person she needed to talk to was out of the office. This was on a Friday. She called again Monday & was put off again. A Mr. Allen Shenker finally called back on Wed. & told us we were past the 3 days and couldn't cancel. After some discussion, he said we could cancel but it would cost us $4,000.
On Mon. 6-18-07 I called the FTC, the Attorney General of Nevada, the Attorney General of Missouri & the Attorney General of Georgia & filed consumer complaints. I also called the finance company that Blue World uses & told them I wasn't going to accept shipment of the pool & I wasn't going to pay for it.
Then, I called Mr. Allen Shenker & told him I wasn't taking shipment on the pool & wasn't going to pay for it. When he started shouting, I hung up on him. He called right back, but I let the answering machine talk to him.
If there are any lawyers suing Blue World Pools or a class action going on against them, I would gladly join in.
