I guess my story is the same as everyone else's. I feel so stupid and angry with myself for falling for something like this. I'm not a stupid person, and I now know that there are other people who aren't stupid either who fell for the same thing. I'm not going to get into the how or why of my reasoning to buy the home theater system...out of a truck...in a parking lot...outside of a Home Depot.
I was coming out of Home Depot and these 2 guys were driving through the parking lot in a nice, dark blue, truck. I'm not sure the make and model, but it looked like a Ford F150 or something similar to that. They were asking who wanted to buy a home theater system for super cheap.
I made them open up the box and they showed me the system, the invoice, the $3,999.00 label price, and told the story about how their company had ordered too many and if they didn't sell them before tonight, they would have to give them to their supervisor who wouldn't give them any money for it, or something like that.
Stupid me decided to buy them. They tried to tell me they just got $500 for it from some lady at some other parking lot. I thought I was being smart in talking them down to $150. Boy was I wrong.
The best thing I can tell you to help you avoid getting ripped off is that they were both white males, probably in their late 30's early 40's. The driver was around 6'0", fat, balding with a pony tail, and stubble on his face, smoking a cigarette. The passenger was also tall, around 6'0" with a goatee and blue eyes. The driver had a magnetic "healing bracelet" and the passenger had a smaller bracelet and necklace.
