I was also a sucker for this one.
I live in an apartment and apparently someone let these people in. I got a knock at my door and it was a guy and girl asking me how I was doing today...
The guy goes RAMBLING on about who they are, they've been walking around all day long and wanted me to take a look at his list of magazines they were selling.
Through his rambling I caught him say that if they sell enough magazines they get these points that go towards their Nassau/Cancun .. wherever the hell trip.
So I acted like I was looking through them, not planning to buy anything at all when they guy says "So which ones do you want?"
I stood there and looked at him for a minute. I couldn't believe how persistent/pushy he was, not to mention disgustingly nice. He said he would write my name on what was the receipt.. and then said "Can I come in and use a corner of your table?"
I backed away and said no. He said "Oh well thats ok, I'll just do it right here, it will just be a little harder to write".
They both were young, and I'm only 21 myself, and apparently the guy thought that because I was younger he was going to seem like a 'cool', down to earth guy, and starts blabbing on about their sales today, and how there are a bunch of people in our city that are prejudice.
I myself am half white & native american, and I am more darker complected. (I'm guessing this was apart of his 'swift, sweet talking' in order to make a sale)
This guy was white, and the girl he had with him was black.
He told me this long story about how they've went to different houses and people wouldn't even look at her. I, being a SAP, of course felt bad.
And made a small minded decision that I will never make again.
Yes, I bought a magazine.
I wrote a check to this Sunshine Subscription for $37.
He told me that I should get the magazine in 90-120 days. But told me his mom got hers in 2 weeks.
After they finally left, instinct or women's intuition.. whatever it might of be.. Something didn't feel right.
I got on the internet to read up about this place, and of course, came across this site.
I feel better to know that I'm obviously not that only one these people have pulled a fast one on.
There's no telling if I really will get the magazine, but I feel either way I'll get screwed out of money anyways. If I cancel the check, it will cost me at least $25. and some other posts I've read, people have said that after doing everything to get their money back, this company has turned them in to the credit bureau.
I feel like there is no sense in having this show up on my credit over $37 & I also feel like getting $12 in return after a canceled check isn't even worth it.
Yes, Young and dumb. BUT, I have most definitely learned something from this.
