===================== NOW TO THE ORIGINAL REPORT THAT WAS FILED

===================== Global Sun Pools - Blue World Pools Bait and switch False Advertising Carson City Nevada

I submitted this to the better business bureau in nevada... Company Information Global Sun Pools/Blue World Pools 2533 N Carson St, Suite 4 Carson City, NV, UNITED STATES, 89706

Complaint Information Complaint Type: General Complaint Date Received: 6/21/2006 Primary Complaint Classification: Advertising Secondary Complaint Classification: Selling Practices Complaint:

Blue world pools advertised on the radio they had among others a 15ft x 24ft pool installed in your ready site for $300. They advertised on TV and Radio (KLIF 570). I checked their website(www.blueworldpools.com) and contacted them and they sent out a sales man. They said he would need 90 minutes of our time. He pitched all their other pools as well as the $300 pool. The others priced at $16,796 and 18,522 for a 24 ft round pool. When he was done with his presentation, he told me that the pool I wanted would cost an additional $385 for shipping and handeling. I also had to submit a letter from my attourney that they would be held blameless if an accident occured with their pool. Then he called his boss. Karm then had me talk to his boss who told me that federal/ state requirements required the homeowner to have $300,000 in insurance before I could purchase the pool even if I installed it myself.

To me, it seemed that this was a bait and switch tecqnique. Even though I was interested in the lower price pool, they made it nearly impossible for me to purchase it. It also seemed like false advertising since I saw no mention of the additional cost on their website(Especially the cost of an attourney for the letter and the $300,000 homeowners insurance.

I didn't complain to the company because I feel they know exactly what they are doing. They have an address listed on the web in Carson City. That is why I am contacting you. I am also going to cantact the radio station that advertised them as well as the attourney generals office in Texas. Thank you.

Desired Settlement: No Settlement Requested - For BBB Info Only Desired Settlement Explanation : I do not want to speak to or do business with them again. I would like to see them change their practices so that customer service rep would be required by law to state the extra requirements $300000 homeowners insurance, a letter from an attourney, and the $375 freight charge before sending a salesman. I would like to see them prosecuted (if applicable) if they do not do this.

This is the 2nd online conversation after I called the 800 number and I made it clear I was going to pay cash for the pool and was told I still had to give them my birth date and social security number so they could run a credit check to make sure we own our home and have had no bankruptcies or forclosures. I was paying cash why would they need this information.
