Gold Coast / $300 Gas Vouchers??

1 not givenPheonix, AZ, United States Review updated:

Lol...ok so this guy calls me, says his name is Mark Benson ID# A1174 employed with Gold Coast Company very very heavy Indian accent, now tell me who with a deep deep Indian accent (probably from a really rich Indian (India) decent) is named Mark Benson??, Lmao he just called back but ill get to that in a moment. So he calls me about these vouchers for $300 of free gas, and I was all over that offer thinkin$300 in gas would be great. He went blah blah blah i told him my name, street, then he tells me $3.90 for shipping/handling.

I told him I didnt have a credit card, debit, or a bank account, I like cashing my paycheck and putting the money in my pocket, well he didnt like that, said I needed to go to a store and get a prepaid card, I said what about a money order? He said they dont accept money orders anymore. So I said ok ok I'll go to Wal-Mart and get a prepaid card call me back tomorrow, he said blah blah blah what time ? I said sometime tomorrow and said I gotta go, dog needs to ### and hung up.

Well I googled the company and what do ya know, I get this website https://www.complaintsboard.com and scam scam scam, while I' m reading a post by Susan Maurer "Mark" calls me back not just 3 mins ago and says "Hi Josh, I just need to clarify the time I should call tomorrow and to see if you had ANY card of ANY TYPE??"

I asked him "Do you know what google.com is?" He said "I will give you our website when the $3.90 fee is verified" I started reading to him one of complaints about Gold Coast Company that I see on this website not even skipping a beat, wouldent let him interrupt me and after I read the whole post to him I said "there are a couple hundred more shall I continue?" He said "buh buh buh uh uh uh uh" so then I said "Well my friend you can now take me off your call list because I think your crazy" and hung up...LOL MADE MY MORNING!!

    My son received a call from the same guy...an indian guy promising $300 gas card. After my son told him what the website said about him, he then gave him the website address http://www.unitedbenefitadvantage.com/ and said that this is his website. My daughter called the company on the other line, while he was on the phone with the salesman, and that company new nothing about a Goldcoast and had never even heard of them. My son immediately hung up on the guy and told him that he was a scam. Unfortunately, as soon as he hung up he told me about it after he had already given my credit card number. Fortunately he was not authorized to charge on my account. Additionally, when I called the credit card company, he had already made a charge on my account for $1.97 called Roadside Assistance. What a Scam...we had to cancel the card right then...Fortunately this site saved us a lot of grief. Thanks folks!
