Golden Circle / Scam and cheating!

1 Queen StreetSouthington, CT, United States Review updated:
Contact information:

I was so frustrated in my career of waitressing. I came across an add that suggested no college degree, training provided. So, I called. Guaranteed 475 a week.Yeah right! I was promised 475 a week plus paid vacations, bonuses, the whole nine yards. BUT that first weekend I had to sell to my friends and family.

#1 I did not sign up for sales the add stated customer service. I thought I would be answering phones. That is customer service last I checked.Needless to say, I busted my ### that weekend with the promise of 200 dollar's per sale. Selling this 2000 dollar machine that noone I know could afford.

Now being my family, I sold two that weekend. So I thought. Light machine I don't think so, I spent 4 day's after that weekend flat on my back, after lugging a 60 lb. box up 3 flights of stairs to sell to a friend who out of her kindness for me bought a vacuum she couldn't afford. The other machine I 'sold' didn't qualify so that was a waste.

I returned my vacuum when I could walk with it only to find that after 2 WEEKS of breaking my back literally, and SELLING ' which was not in the job description, I'm customer service' I ended up with NOTHING! B/C my sales were not A+ credit, so they don't count.

I broke my back and sold a stupid vacuum to someone who can't afford and walked away with nothing. These people should not be allowed to con people the way they do. I will be the most addiment to say stay clear of Golden Circle in Southgton CT.

    Not to sound rude, but it's not "add." "Add" means "addition, " as in mathematics.

    The term you are looking for is "ad, " which is short for "advertisement, " which is what you are complaining about.

    I purchased a 1 litre of Golden Circle Pine Mango Fruit Drink about a month ago. Best before date 07/12/08 at 09:04 1
    I do not now know where I purchased it from nor how much I paid but the strang thing is that when I went to open it last night, I found that it felt rather light.
    When I shook it I realised that it was half empty and it has NOT been opened.
    This is obviously a packing fault and I felt you should know about it.
    I will hold it here until I hear from you.

    I received a phone call from Golden Circle #860-329-0329 I didn't answer because I suspected it was a solicitor. So I looked it up online and found your complaint. Beware they are tele marketing.

    They are at it again, with the telemarketing, trying to get people to sign up for their scam!!!

    I did not recognize the name "Golden Circle" so I looked it up online and found this site, and the [redacted] website too.

    The phone number that showed on my caller ID was 860-329-0323

    I see the first complaint here was from 2008, and now it's 2010, and Golden Circle is still trying to con people! Someone should stop them!

    I was lucky and did not buy one from them. Who has $1200.00 to spend. I found someone that showed me how to get a Kirby for only a few hundred dollars, the current model Sentria. Love it, keeps my house cleaner than before. He can be reached at Save a ton of money and still get a Kirby.
