Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

On feb.05,2013  I received a pamphlet from DirectBuy stating that i won an E-pad and 100 dollar gift certificate.. I called  the phone number on the pamphlet and was asked to come in for 90 listen to a presentation. I asked the lady if this was a gimmick. She said no its not and that i won the gifts. An appointment was made and when they tried selling me a 4500 dollar signing fee. i said noway it doesn't make any sence. 

I thought there was no savings there .. after the 90 min was over, the marketing director said to me and my son to wait at the front door.. he shows up moments later with just a cheap gift card which  u have to go online and search for restaurants that offer gift cert. but u have to spend a certain amount of money in order to use the gift card. The director stated that they didn't have the e-pad because they are to come in on feb.07, 2013 . Well there u go.. these people should be put in jail.
