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

A telemarketer called with an offer to send out a $50 gift card from WalMart in exchange for sending me an information package on memberships to MWI Essentials and MWI Simple Escapes. He said I would not have to pay for the membership until I looked it over and decided to take it or to cancel it.

I did not give him any credit card or checking account information...but he already had it!! He gave me a 4 digit number to write down and told me to repeat it back when he asked me to after reading the explanation of each offer. There was a beep each time I said it and I got suspicious.

Then it dawned on me it was the last 4 digits of my Visa Debit card number. He was tricking me into saying that number so that they could dub it into their own recording!! I confronted him but he said it was just a random number. I told him to CANCEL anything he had done and hung up.

The charges posted to my account 3 weeks later. RIP OFF!!
