Complaint Review: Entrepreneurs Sales - Michigan City Indiana
Entrepreneurs Sales - door to door magazine sales, magazines never arrived - Michigan City Indiana
On July 15, 2015, we fell prey to a con artist who arrived at our door. His name was Gregg Peterson and he had what seemed to be valid identification and licenses for his sales job. He spent much time telling us about his background and how he was trying to not end up in jail like other family members. He just wanted to get himself out of poverty and "make something of himself". He even spent time talking with our kids who were outside playing at the time he walked up our driveway. We ended up purchasing 3 magazines for a total of $110 (which ended up at a total of $125 since they tacked on a $15 service fee). We felt good about this costly purchase since he said 40% of the money goes directly to him to help him learn job skills and prepare for the work world.
It is now almost 6 months later and the magazines have never arrived. The receipt we received looked legitimate...printed up with all the usual disclaimers and in triplicate. It did indicate it could take up to 4 months to receive the magazines, which seems awfully long since for my son's school magazine drive it took just a few weeks to receive them.
I have called the only phone number I have several times. One time I did actually get through to a real person, who informed me that December would be the first issue we receive. December came and went without magazines. I've left several messages with no return calls.
We have definitely learned our lesson and will never fall prey for this again, no matter what kind of sob story the salesman gives us. And unfortunately this means any well-meaning person (including kids selling for trips) will have to take No for an answer from our house.
