Local Panlamin, LLC - Total Scam!! BEWARE! Gilbert Arizona
A door-to-door salesperson came to our VA apartment on a rainy, overcast day this winter. I have worked in sales and know how frustrating it can be, so I decided to hear him out and let him in out of the rain. He was around our age (in his 20s) and seemingly friendly. He was trying to win a contest as "top salesperson" for a paid vacation.
Once inside, he gave us a list of real magazines. We chose one that interested us, and he told us for a year subscription it would be $56. He explained he could waive a portion of the total if it stayed beneath his limit for the day. He said he had only waived so much on that day and that he could make it $36 for us, saving us $20.
He was quite aggressive and repetitive, very pushy. I overlooked it and figured it was still a nice thing to help someone out who has a less-than-glamorous job. We told him we would like him to follow up with us and let us know when our magazine order had been placed, and when we could expect our first issue.
He happily agreed and told us he would contact us when he turns his collections in at the end of the "shift". Then provided us with a legitimate-looking receipt, with instructions on how to cancel our check (though refund fees would be deducted for cancellation).
After hearing nothing from Conner MacDonald (the supposed salesperson) for over 3 days, we figured he had "forgotten" and perhaps "misplaced" our order. We chose to cancel, not knowing where our money had really gone. Even still, Panlamin LLC deposited the check which was then deducted from our account. No confirmation of our refund attempt has been made, and it has been nearly a month.
We are now pursuing any way to receive our money back, though not very much, it's the principle. Dishonest salespeople are criminals! Scheming and lying to young families like ourselves, or anyone for that matter is no way to form a career or positive lifestyle.
If you have any information, or personal experience with this fraudulent "company" please let us know. We would love to know where to go from here, and how to stop this from happening to other families and individuals.
