a FRIEND TOLD US ABOUT DIRECT BUY - KNOWING THAT I WULD BE PURCHASING HIGH TICKET ITEMS FOR MY NEW HOME. GOT AN APPT - SAT THRU A VIEO WHERE ONLY 3 REPUTABLE COMPANIES WHERE SHOWN. SALESAMAN WHO EXPLAINED COST TO JOIN - FLEW THRU THE DETAILS AT RECORD SPEED - EVERYONE IN ROOM WAS STUNNED. IT WAS 4 GRAND TO JOIN - AND IF YOU DID NOT JOIN ON THE SPOT - YOU WERE BANNED FOR 7 YEARS FROM JOINING. I WAS VERY SKEPTICAL AND ASKED TOO MANY QUESTIONS FOR THEIR LIKING. I FELT I WAS IN THE MIDDLE OF A PYRAMID SCHEME OR BEING SOLD A TIME SHARE.

THE PAYMENT INSTALLMENT WAS PRESENTED TO US - WE DECLINED. BUT BEING THAT I STILL WANTED TO INVESTIGATE THEIR CREDSENTIALS AND POSSIBLY JOIN AT A LATER DATE - I GAVE A 200 DOLLAR DEPOSIT. IT WAS WORTH IT TO - AND BOY AND I GLAD I DID NOT SIGN THE COMNTRACT 600 BUCKS ETC ETC......17% INTEREST THOUGH IF YOU PAY IN INSTALLMENTS. IT IS REALLY SAD THAT THE AVERAGE PERSON DOES NOT REALIZE THAT YOU HAVE TO SPEND AT LEAST 12 GRAND TO ACTUALLY MAKE THIS SCAM A GOOD DEAL. AND MOST THINGS ARE ONLY 15% OFF - WHICH IS OTHING CONSIDERING YOU HAVE TO PAY AN 8% HANDLING CHARGE. MY 200 DOLAR INVESTMENT WAS MY ONLY LOSS - AND HOPEFULLY I CAN SPREAD THE WORD ENOUGH TO WARN PEOPLE - DO NOT JOIN - DO NOT EVEN GO TO THE HIGH PRESSURE SALES MEETING.

IT WAS JUSTR SHAMEFUL!!!!!!

I HOPE THE bbb AND CONSUMER AFFAIRS SHUS THEM DOWN - THE OWNERE OF THE ALLENTOWN LOCATION STATED HE WAS OPENING A NEW STORE IN ANOTHER pa LOCATION - THEY MUST BE SCAMMING A LOT OF PEOPLE TO BE SO SUCCESSFUL!!!!
