Well, not sure I've been ripped off...yet. I actually just thought I'd check out the website online, if there was one. The girl who sold me the magazine told me there was and I could make a comment on the site about what an honest and friendly sales person she was. Wow. Then, I saw all these rip off articles about this company. Can't believe I fell for it. Whoever is responsible behind this should be caught. Number one, they are exploiting children and it's sick. SICK! These kids will always be con artists now. What else will they know how to do when they see how well their acting "pays" off.
I gave cash so yeah, I'll never see that magazine, Motor Trend, that I got for my son who loves autos like most boys. And while it was sickening to pay $45 for a one year subscription, I did it for a "good cause". Emily was a sweetheart. I had previously told kids who'd come to our door, "no" mainly because I didn't have any money on me. It just so happened I'd won a little off a scratch off ticket so I gave it all to this girl. Well, I didn't loose as much as some of these people but still, that's not the point. You count 100's of people like me giving their cash away to these young punks and they are making a pretty darn good living, tax free, for doing a little bit of acting. My daughter wants to go into acting. Hmmm....kidding! Wonder if these kid's parents know what their own are up to? Doubt it. Unless they're behind it as well. Who knows?
So, how do you catch these guys? Curious. Maybe next time one of them shows up at my door, I'll think on my feet and turn them down, naturally, but then follow them once they walk out of my circle and see where they go. Then, I'll turn in the license tag over to the police. Only thing I can think of.
I'll update this if anything ever happens. Good luck to others who want to stop these scam artists!
