WARNING!!!!!!!!!!
WARNING!!!!!!!!!!
WARNING!!!!!!!!!!

An over-shipment of lower quality audio systems was shipped from China or Mexico some time last month or two to the USA and had legally cleared US. Customs about the same time.

A well organized group of individuals operating between California, Oregon, Seattle and Texas have been ripping-off people by telling them that they had just came from work about 30 minutes ago and that there warehouse manager has signed them up with two additional stereo systems (there job being outside sales reps or delivery guys for that company) The error being always between 2 to 3 extra stereo systems signed to them by mistake.

There MO is quite typical:
*Always a rented SUV (too good to be for an outside rep or delivery boy and untraceable with a fake ID) rented most likely by a bogus Californian ID or temporary International or "Canadian" driving license.
(The guy showed it to me as he learned that I spoke French thinking I was Canadian too).
It said Quebec Canada and the guy is definitely Canadian Qubecquoi (from his broken Qubecquoi French accent).

*There is always tow guys or more(so they don't get jumped by gang members or thieves specially in California)probably armed.
The other guy is Hispanic sitting in the driver seat not saying a word with short hair evidence of a recently shaved head about one week to 10 days ago.
The Canadian had a non-Canadian accent in English and spoke fluently English and was very convincing in his story
(Hello Alec Trubec).

*They would always claim that this is a $1,999 system and as a proof they would show you a picture of another (similar)system in a computer magazine saying that this is that's in the box.

*They all are in there early 20's and they would panic if you start asking them questions like where 's the company HQ or what's there ph# or web address or technical audio questions(LOL).

I am a shroud sales person by craft and by nature;
I kept bargaining the price with him just to test him out
and told him I wasn't interested since I was in financial hardship but finally he reluctantly agreed to sell me the system for $100 bucks!!!.

($100?? wait there's something fishy!!)

Before I paid him I made him say repeatedly to me that the merchandise wasn't stolen, just because I was trying to put my finger of who he really was; maybe an undercover cop? But he adamantly protested and rejecting the idea of the goods being stolen, something an undercover cop would never do.

Before I gave him the $100 I told him that I needed to get to an ATM for the cash.
As I turned the corner I got on my wireless connected lap-top and conducted a goggle search using the name and model code on the box (Digital Research DA 5.1)and fond the scam!

Some systems even where selling on ebay from places as fare as Ft. Lauterdayle FL anywhere from $350 to $400 (probably scamed customers trying to cut there losses short).

I also found out from the internet that a similar system manufactured both in China and Mexico retails for about $125 to $200 in Downtown Los Angeles Electronics trash market (I am sure you all have seen the crazy Gideon TV add if you live in LA, Orange and San Bernardino counties in CA).
It must be an over night Importer (no not Gideon his a good guy) who had decided to scam people in the west and shipped that system under different labels directly from overseas
(Customs should know better they have all the BLs and Original Docs since its fare too expansive & dumb to smuggle trash!).

Similar systems according to the internet works good for up to 2 to 3 years (Maximum warranty offered by manufacturer).

So knowing it was a scam I tried to find a pay phone since my cell batteries died on me and wanted to 911 the cops (where is internet telephony when you need it!).
I couldn't find a dam payphone anywhere so as I pulled back to the con artist and told him I will place him under citizens arrest and know what kind of game he was pulling and will give him $5 bucks for the system or his toasted.
I KNOW IT'S CALLED EXTORTION! He's welcomed to sue me any time!
He started sweating like a pig and I almost put them both to tears (punks).

I even made him put the system in my trunk made him apologize and warned him that there will be an APB (I heard that one on NYPD once) for his arrest and that "THEY now know who you are".
I have never seen adult guys sweat so profusely before.
He thanked me much like someone after you save there moms life and promised that he will never do that again and that he learned his lesson (bull).

Don't try that yourself ever as I am sure people like that are always packing heat, don't worry about me I had 3 friends in my SUV. and one of us had a legal reason to carry a gun and was waiting for a false move or even an excuse... can't say any more...
Peotic justice don't you think?
Thanks, Jose

I BET YOU FEEL LIKE A BIG MAN

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

POSTED: Tuesday, August 02, 2005

i just got done reading your rip off report and i was quite disturbed. you see, i am one of those guys you are talking about. the one thing that you need to know is that for a hundred dollars you got those speakers for less than almost anybody who sells them gets them for. those poor guys were probably having a hard week and you come along and give them cost. the only problem that these speakers have is that somebody pays less than thier friend did. you got the deal of the year for them. nobody gets them that cheap not on ebay not out of the truck and not even through there friends. you saw this on ebay. i would have loved for you to reach the police that day, they would have told you to get the sand out of your stinky a*s vagina, and that everything was lagit. if those cops find that it isnt lagit then more power to you. but this still doesnt aleviate the fact that you are a WHINY LITTLE b***h!!! you probably didnt even hook them up. so skeptical. just because they arent sold in a showroom doesnt mean that they are garbage. i have put these speakers up to sony, bose, panasonic. and i will tell you this. they f**ken ROCKED THEM. even my costomers have said this. even if your speakers didnt sound as good as what you already have(provided you actually hooked them up)you still looked them up and found them on a website that is known for the cheapest place to shop. and they were four times as much as your offer. i would like to see you in a cash buisness and give up product to get by with no commission and then being ripped off by some complaining little p***y. i cant beleive you say that you are in sales you sound like a chump. if you were anything near a closer you would appreciate how tough these sales are. or how much experience it gives you, or how it gives a good sense of running your own buisness. if what you got was what was on the box than you got exactly what they said they had. it is people like you that make me sick you have so much of a complaint about 100 dollars.you must be a jew. i will tell you this i only wish that you take a sales course or have a son with a shitty minimum wage because if you think this horribly about buying a product, that you would call the police or scare that person who probably is new to this. then you have to pick up the dictionary and actually look up the meaning of scam. a*****e

ps oh yea if you dont like what i say than email back and i will discuss it with you, your really lucky that your hundreds of miles away because im not a grown man and i wont be the one crying. next time just say no and move on your way hard a*s
