Okay,

My good friend just called me about a half hour ago from richardson TX. He was walking into a Jamba Juice Grocery store when a green Ford Explorer, with florida license plates, pulled in front of him and his female companion. Three white men were in the vehicle. The one who did all the talking looked to be about 35-40 years old 5'10" dk hair and a friendly demenur, he asked my buddy if he'd like to buy some speakers. The seccond guy 20-23 years old was skiddish and strange looking and the thrid guy stayed in the back ground and never said a word.

The man who was to do all the talking explained that these Audiofile speakers were bound for delivery and too many were sent to the address. Since these men had no use for them and couldn't show up back at their wherehouse with them, they had decided to sell them to my friend. They claimed these were worth well over $1000 and he could have them for only $200.

My friend asked for some kind of proof that these are the real deal, so them produced the dilivery invoice as well as a maufacture's lifetime guarante, they did everything but test the speakers on the spot. After he bought them he had me check online to see how much they were accually worth.

Come to find out, all that turned up on the Audiofile 583LR is that it is a scam!!! and this scam has been going on from California to Texas to Florida. Across the entire country. From now on if i see guys trying to sell stuff like this out of a van or truck i'm calling the Police, and anyone who's reading this should do the same.

#2 Consumer Comment

The easiest person to cheat is someone who wants something for nothing

AUTHOR: Paul - (U.S.A.)

POSTED: Saturday, September 04, 2004

Juiop, above, is exactly right. The hallmark of a good con is when the victim is able to think they are the ones who are cheating the con artist. In the big speaker con, the victim is so busy thinking how they are going to get this great deal on top-dollar speakers that they never bother to check the actual value. They focus all their energy on making a killer deal. Some victims drive away laughing about how they "took" these two speaker installers to the cleaners. That's the beauty of the whole con. The victim thinks that they are the ones getting over on the speaker salesmen. They get to name their own price. They get to haggle. If the speaker salesmen work the con right, they can even get the victim to buy them some free beer. You say "come on, you know that you are taking advantage of us. These speakers are worth way more than $300 for the pair. At least throw in an extra $20 so we can get some beer." That cinches the deal. The victim is so happy that he got over on the two stupid speaker salesmen that he actually ends up feeling sorry and throws in another $20. It's kind of sad to say, but that is what the majority of the morality has decayed to in the the world. I can't get you to participate in a reasonable deal for everyone involved. But, let me show you how to cheat someone, and you're all ears. Let's cheat the insurance company. Everybody does it. Or, let's cheat this rich person. They have plenty of money to spare. Are you in? Of course you are. The guy above is right. Most people are so busy trying to participate in cheating the speaker factory that they completely overlook the fact that what they are attempting to buy is worthless. This is exactly why all the get-rich-quick scams work so well. Nobody wants to do 30 years of hard work to get somewhere. Instead, they want to do it in a year or two. And, if they have to cheat somebody to do it, oh well, that's how it goes. So along comes a con artist offering to sell you all your dreams for just $1000. He'll show you how to get rich overnight without working hard. Of course, anybody with any sense knows that there is no such thing as something for nothing. But, the vast majority of the world continues to think it exists. So, they are ripe victims for the con artists and scammers. In the end, all the victims come to realize that there is no such thing as something for nothing. For some people it takes years. They go from one scheme to the next, always thinking that this is the deal that is going to make them rich. Others learn after the first bad deal. In the end, they are both poorer, but wiser.

POSTED: Friday, May 21, 2004

The only scam is they make you guys feel like you are the one who is scamming them.That is the whole point of the pitch.The price will always come down to around 200 dollars if you dont fall for the oke doke.And the truth is that is about what they are worth.Reason why it hasn't been stopped after years and years,it really isnt iileagal just morally questionable.
