Ok so these two guys came to my door talking about some contest that their in and that they only needed a couple more points to win a trip to Europe. They then proceeded to ask themselves into my house because it was "cold." I reluctantly let them and the second they sat down at my dinner table I regretted letting them in, but figured it would only be a couple minutes until they got warmed. 

They then said that it smelled like food so I told them I was baking a pizza but it had burned and they said "We'll eat it." As if that wasn't odd enough, then they said they were selling magazines....they pretty much tricked me into letting them in to sell me stuff, not because it was cold.

They kept on pressuring me to buy the magazines,I thought about it but they we're ridiculously overpriced. I was getting uncomfortable but they continued to pressure me to buy the magazines, I finally told them I couldn't afford the magazines because I was a college student with no job. They continued to persuade me until I finally told them I literally had no money at the moment, He then asked me if I had a credit card. I told him I did and then he said "we take credit cards." I told him that regardless I didn't have money but he said a credit card counts as money. I got the credit card and said fine I'll buy a magazine just so they could leave, he took my credit card number and registered me for 2 magazine subscriptions that we're a total of over $110. I told him I could only afford 1 but he insisted in purchasing 2. I told him I didn't have the money for 2 and then he asked me if I had any cash on me, I had 15 bucks and I gave it to him so he would just leave already. He then saw a jar of coins sitting on the counter and said that he was a "professional coin counter" WTF? He asked if he could count the jar so I assumed he was just going to do me the favor of counting the coins. After spending 10min counting my jar of coins he said there was around 25$ worth of coins and asked me for a ziploc bag. I gave it to him and he nonchalantly put the coins in the bag and said "thank you for your donation". WTF? On his way out he asked if he could use the bathroom, so I let him. Then he asked me for a sweater because it was cold, I told him I didn't have one. He told me to go check because it was cold even though it was only 50 degrees out at most. I reluctantly checked for a sweater but told him I didn't have any. he then said "You don't have a single sweater??" WTF? why is this guy even asking me for a sweater?? I went back to my closet got a random sweater and gave it to them just so they would leave already.

In other words they pressured me into buying an overpriced magazine subscription I didn't even want, wasted like 45min of my time, invited themselves into my house, lied to me about the contest, tricked me into letting them in, stole 15$ in cash from me and 25$ in coins and labeled them as "donations" used my bathroom asked me for a sweater. WTF?? the only reason I complied was because I feared for my safety, these were to big sketchy guys with tatoos and I was the only one home. The only reason I didn't straight up tell them to Get the f**k out of my house was because I felt they could have been a potential threat. This company is a SCAM!! BEWARE!!
