I keep getting calls from these Middle-Eastern tele-marketteers. I can just tell by the accent.
Heres the thing I am a skilled Marketteer who also utlizes the phone as well to help consumers get what they are looking for. So I can some-what tell if they are a liable company.
On 10/31/04 I recieved a call, I knew automatically its another one of those Indians for the east. If not the same one. So he starts telling me I have been selected from a random list of residences in the Sacramento, CA area, to recieve a FREE $200.00 shopping spree.
I told him to let me speak with some one within their company who can speak clear english. He said, "What do speak english to you sir".
I replied, "No! you don't. Your english is all broken, and I can't fully understand what you are saying". I then told him to get his supervisor or someone who can speke english.
So some other dude with an even worse accent gets on and said the exeact same thing, word for word. So by this time I'm getting peturved.
I demanded to know where they were calling from, and persisted to talk to someone with english. Then they put this young ladie on the phone who could speak english very well , she told me her name was Marie Dawson employee #0453.
She tells me they are promiting "Boulevard Entertainment". Some kind of movie theater. She tells me 20 people in my city have been selected to recieve 4 free movie passes at any theater and a $200.00 shopping spree. All I have to do is pay for the shipping and handeling fee of $3.95.
First off if I'm selected to get something for free then you better send it free. I started drilling her about her company and told her I wanted to send them a Money order.
She tells me no I could only get this if I pay for the shipping using my checking account over the phone.
Like how stupid do you think I am, I made up some BS about how I was an FCC agent then the hung up on me.
I then went on line to see if I could find info on their company. I typed in there name she gave me and the first and only page that came up was www.ripoffreport.com.
I want to thank all of you who put this site together. Not only is this company reported here put some other companies who keep callin me are as well. So thanks Rip-off Report.
I then made a call to my local F.B.I. s' office and they will hopefully get the cheaters and theives out of our country.
