#1 Consumer Suggestion

Appologized to all US Americans

AUTHOR: Ali - (Pakistan)

Hi there!
I know you have suffered alot due to our company policies. As I am an ex employee of blue hippo at their offshore contact centre in Pakistan. I have worked with in the Sales department where we take orders.
Actually they are not doing the injustice with their customers but with their employees. I resigned due to the deceptive behaviour of my manager which was accepted by HR and I was given a one month salary as a compensation. I didn't worked but I get the salary. People here in Pakistan hired to take calls from US people has quite an odd accents and they claim they are in Baltimore but don't know any place in Baltimore and some of them are unaware of the US time zones. They got trained to take calls just for a week and then put on calls to let you people suffer but few of them misrepresent delibrately and others has to read the deceptive script VERBATIM. Its not our fault because if we tell you we are located in Pakistan we'll be fired not being abide by the policies. This is the main reason customer remain apprehensive on things.
Believe me! Nobody is happy there in Pakistan office because of US people suffering and wonder how come they stay in business after doing all that to customers.We got 100 of calls everyday that you pay your hard earned money for too long for a computer you could possibly have 4 times less cheaper than bluehippo. Still after paying the paayments you got nothing from bluehippo. The main problem and pain to your sufferings is the CEO "Joseph Rensin", who has a history of ripping off and scamming people with bad credit.
I would request all the US inocent people to do the complete market research before financing to companies like bluehippo. We got sued in MD, IL WV and some other states and can't do business with their residents. If we got call from such states for a computer who is unaware of the company's profile we have to give them a rebuttal that "currently we are not financing in your area, I appologize for that"
BlueHippo is in the business for past four years and got sued by 5 states in four years due to deceptive trade practise. They can stay in the business for a good time due to the lawyers they have hired to fight against the law suit. I guess by the time they will be ban in all 50 states they can make a lot more money they are making these days and will prey many more credit troubled and innocent US customers.
I feel sorry for all the US people who has been ripped off and those who will remain unaware of this BlueHippo predator and will be ripped off in the comings years.

Their website is:

Sales Line is:

1-800-747-4260 Call this no. on your day off and see how they sound and deal over the phone. 0% customer handling skills.

My pal said they've got Blue Hippo advertisements running on ESPN channels AND on 105.7FM at least 15-20 times a day in St. Louis.

And incidentally, the CEO has been in trouble before for predatory lending practices:

If anyone or any current employee suspects I am lying, there aint a truth in whatever I said and I never worked for this company, shoot me your concerns and I'll answer you every bit of bluehippo people here in Pakistan.

Sincerely,

Muhammad Ali.
