April 5, 2007
Yesterday, April 4,2007, Aimee Hendricks was on the "Spot" for particular young people in Graham, Texas. One of my teenage sons, was approached by two guys that appeared as "stoners". My sons came home with a business card in hand, a wild, excited tale of traveling around the country, selling magazines starting in Denton, Texas; having a great time while earning lots of money and ready to pack for a road trip.
Unfortunately, our sons must have been well informed of their "rights" to go where they wished, when they wished since they are 18 and over, etc.
When the phone rang, my husband answered, and handed the phone to me. I wanted to know who I was talking too and how to spell the name. I received the usual fly by night attitude from Aimee Hendricks. She was calling to get directions to our home to pick up our sons.
Of course, she did not receive the information because I was interested in the company she worked for. I did manage to to find out, these kids are supposedly paid $30.00 a day with a commission bonus; they are rewarded for 3 days of the highest sales with a new pair of shoes. The motel room is paid for by the company (how many people sleep in ONE motel room?). The door to door sales person can be promoted to a driver, after who knows how long of pounding on doors and pavement. The driver's job is to drive around and "spot" other people to approach in hopes of enticing them into the sales group.
Denton (Denton County) Texas, Please Be Aware of this Fly BY Night Scam Group arriving in your location. Thank you for taking the time to read this report. Please inform your young people to not be sucked in by the cool stories of traveling, cool parties and easy money?.
PS We were able to talk some sense into our sons and I am very happy to report, they are both still here at home and safe. :)
