SVT Inc SCAM Columbia, Missouri
My report is similar to others regarding this company. I reveived a call on a Monday from a woman who said her name was Charlie Wilson. She told me she talked to my boss, and gave his name, and said he wanted me to take advantage of the deals she was offering. She started listing a number of prices on common office supplies. I told her she could send me a catalog. She informed me that WHEN I place an order, an invoice will arrive a few days later. We got off the phone and I didn't think much of it.
By that Friday, 3 large heavy boxes arrived through UPS from SVT Inc. I refused delivery and UPS took them back. I tried calling the number that was listed on these boxes, but every time I tried, and it was a lot of times, I was asked to leave a message. I finally left a message and just told them that 3 boxes arrived from them that I did not order, and that they would be coming back and we wouldn't be paying for them.
Someone tried calling back while I was out of the office. He just asked that I call him back, and didn't say anything about the message I left. I have tried calling them back a few more times, but refuse to leave another message. They haven't tried calling me back since, and I have yet to receive an invoice from them.
The key to dealing with these people: REFUSE SHIPMENT! You can refuse any mail that is sent to you AS LONG AS YOU DON'T OPEN IT! Once you open it, it becomes yours. It could be very costly to have to send it back.
I was lucky in this situation. I just don't understand how people think they can make money through scams like these!
