*Consumer Comment: Avoiding the problem
Even though I admit that I was foolish in trying to purchase a computer without knowing much about computers or the company I was dealing with, I still feel very much tooken advantage of by this company,the additional soft ware that was sold to me pretty much came free with the computer in there microsoft package,For example I was sold the music match software package for $100 and something dollars but discovered there was a better music management package that came free with the computer.I purchased word perfect office package for over a hundred dollars and most of what it offers came free already with the computer but of course the sells person did not advice me of this as a matter of fact none of this software was my idea he told me of a wonderful package that included all of this stuff including the printer wich was an incredible low price of about 2000 dollars,And I like the unknowing Idiot said I'd take it for 67.00 per month not knowing that Id be paying 67.00 per month for roughly the next four years,And if your late tack on another 30.00 for late fee the apr is around 24% wich for me means that out of the seventy dollars that I send to them every month only 35.00 goes towards what I owe the finance charge keeps the rest and Ive been paying for almost two yearsso you can imagine how much money I'm being ripped off for, so I will tell all of you like I tell my friends and family dont buy from these people you will get more for your money going somewhere else and if you do decide to buy please do your homework before calling,there sales people are as ruthless as car salesmen on a lemon lot and I would advice anyone needing to finance to either look around for a store that has really good sales on electronics and if you still cant afford to buy it put one on layaway thats what I should have done I would have saved myself alot of money and alot of stress and worry!
