caller advantage 24/7 call MD / pressure calling and lieing
I recieved a call at 9:02 pm from caller advantage to let me know I was selected to receive a $100 gas card and the only thing I had to do was pay $2.95 for shipping, I asked if I would be signed up for anything that I would have to cancel, or if there was anything else that I would have to do, I was told no, I asked again, , " there is NOTHING AT ALL that I will have to do?" and I was told No, I was just chosen for being a customer, I was also told that I didnt have to pay the $2.95 until after I received the gift card, so I went ahead and gave the man my credit card#, he then transfered me to another person who said that I was going to receive airline tickets, I advised him that I was not told that, he then told me that I was going to get some information on a couple offers, I was to look over the info, at this point I was getting upset because now it was becoming obvious that I DID have to do something to get the gas card, then the man transfered me to an automated line to verify my info, when asked again for my credit card# I hung up. This morning at 8:20 am, I got another call, I advised the man that I had been lied to and didnt want to participate, he said that my credit card had been charged the $2.95 and I would get the gas card, I advised him I didnt agreed to my card being charged, He said that he would send the gas card and NOTHING else, but I had to give my info to the automated line in order for my info to be deleated from there system and I needed to have the conformation #, if I didnt do this he couldnt be sure what would happen with my card info, so I gave the info but wouldent say yes at the end, so he got back on the line and said that I had to, I then told him that they were lieing to me and I didnt want ANYTHING from them, he said they are a ligitimate company and they wernt liars, I advised him that I had been lied to several times, he then said he would delete my info and I wont receive anything or any more calls, we'll see about that. I asked him why a few minuets ago he said that I had to give my info to the automated in order for my info to be deleted, he said that he never said that, these people lie to get you to agree on a recorded line and tell you that if you say OK insted of yes that you are not agreeing, I advised him YES and OK are the same.These people dont let you talk and contradict themselves over and over, Dont even listen, Just hang up. I wish I had.
