*Consumer Comment: Gift or no gift
*Consumer Comment: You are already doing it Jenna
*Author of original report: FREE GIFT SCAM
*UPDATE EX-employee responds: Jenna, have nothing to do with Direct Buy. Warn everybody.
*Consumer Comment: There are no free gifts
They said that they will send a key with the information. If the Key turns the lock then I will win $50,000 in cash or in home renovations (my choice) - w/ no purchase necessary.
They also stated that I will be guarenteed to win two of the gifts below just for going to the presentation: (As stated from the Direct Buy packet):
1. dell computer laptop - inspirion 9300 (retail $1249)
2. tennis bracelet Retao; $49
3. Three (3) day (2) night vacation accomodations Retal: $175 (you have to pay a $29.95 refundable deposit when booking to redeem this item)
4. Samsung 23" LCD HDTV Retail $679
5. $500.00 Cash
I received the small packet and it confirms the above, but is it credible?
Now, I'm intrigued about the possibility of just going to a meeting (which the packet states is about 90 minutes - a little excessive!!) - HOWEVER, after reading everyone's complaints I wonder: Has Anyone Been Promised The Above Gifts and What was the outcome?
Please respond because I don't know what to do. Also, if there are any lawyers out there that can shed light to false advertising or false promises. IE: They guarentee 2 of the above listed gifts but give nothing or something completely different - then aren't there repucussions?
