Kirsch Loud Speakers / Scam!
'White Van Scam' today my husband was waved down by a pair of white men that wanted to show him some speakers they wanted to sell. They were in a black 4runner with Florida License plates. They were next to him waiting for traffic light and waved him down. Thinking it was a good deal they stopped at a parking lot and talked about selling this to my husband.
They said they had to sell it because they had made a mistake and had an extra system to sell or else the 'boss would keep it'.
It retailed for around 2,500 they said and they even had a stereo magazine with the picture and price. With an invoice! The website http://www.kirschloudspeakers.com .Thing is that my husband called me from the mans cell phone to let me know about the 'deal' we agreed it was ok. His information came out on my caller ID.
When he got home he told me all about it. He just had this gut feeling. Well after hours I searched the brand of the speakers online and came upon the 'White Van Scam'. Seems like this has been going on for a while but I guess it hasn't been out in the public as far as TV. I haven't seen any news channels warning the public about it. I've see the check scams and such. I found out it was a number in Austin , TX the name of the man came out to be Rob Cunningham.
I was going to call this fool to ask for our money back. I am pissed. My husband then called him and said I want my money back. He said who do you want to talk to, this is a company phone and different people use the phone he said call back tomorrow and we'll see who sold it to you yesterday. My husband then said it wasn't sold yesterday it was sold this afternoon. And the guy didn't say anything.He said all I want is my money back I know this is a scam! I just want my money you get your 'product' back! He said well call back tomorrow. My husband said I want my money dude or else I will report you to the police. He said well if you're going to report me don't call me back! He hung up the phone. My husband called back and the 'Rob' didn't answer the phone.
My husband left a message and said All I want is my money and remember I have your name and number and I know that this number is from Austin. My husband is going to call tomorrow again. They shouldn't get away with this anymore! This needs to stop! I will file a police report this guy convinced my husband to go to the bank granted it was a 'deal' but still a rip off, a scam! I told my husband to mention to him that he needs to give us back the money he paid and he'll get his pos back.
My husband also said that he was stuttering after my husband told him that he knows his name and has his number and knows his license plate. I hope he calls us back or else we will put out a police report. I am sure that there are people in the Houston and surrounding areas that are going to get scammed.
