Lokey Volkswagen / The old bait and switch trick
The old bait and switch trick . . .
The Lokey Volkswagen at 27850 US 19 N Clearwater Fl uses a bait and switch tactic to get prospects into their dealership. I received information in the mail that scratched off and MATCHED for a $2000 win.
I called the phone number and they said yes, I won the $2000. When I arrived they said the scratch off number that matches was not the winner. It was another number on the other side of the promotion. They referred me to fine print on the other side of the promotion the winning match does not guarantee a prize. In other words nobody ever wins any of the prizes EVER except a cheap fishing pole that few if anybody wants or needs.
We are looking for a second car but now have second thoughts about Lokey. It will be interesting to learn the name of the person who wins the $25, 000 or the Flat screen TV. When Lokey sends me that info I will then consider buying a car from them.
