     I was literally in the act of leaving my home on a vacation on December 10,2009, when the phone rang.  The caller told me that he was calling from "TFS," (a Company I had bought VERY EXPENSIVE paint from by mail months earlier).  He told me I had been among 4,000 customers entered into a contest by the Company and had won a "Stereo System."  I was told that to legally avoid paying New York State tax on it, I could buy some cleaning solvent (for $35.00).  I agreed and then left the house on my trip.  Upon returning home about ten days later, I found a delivered parcel at my door.  Inside were six pounds, (supposedly - it seemed lighter), of cleaner and an Invoice for a $189.02 charged to my credit card.  (This card was the same one used to buy the paint.  I called the Company to complain that I didn't order so much cleaner and was told by a female that the charge was already made and it was too late to dispute it.  I was also told that their records showed I HAD NOT won a stereo.  I started to "raise cain" and was put on "hold."  Upon returning, she informed me that a stereo would be sent to me, (within ten days - to date I have received nothing and it has been over a month).  I called my Credit Card Company and was told to write "TFS" a letter requesting they disgard my credit card information, which I have done, but offerred no further advice.  "TFS" IS A BLATANTLY CROOKED COMPANY.  I could not find it listed with the New York State consumer affairs office when I tried.  I also have yet to see if the long-lasting claims they made for their ($150 per gallon!) paint product comes true.
