Sales Leads — Bait and Switch
I got an unsolicited email from InsideUp Inc, that wanted to sell me sales leads in my industry.
I spoke with their rep who offered to sell me leads at $17.50 each. When I called back to get more information, I spoke to a 'manager', who told me that the price was actually $22.50 not the $17.50 as agreed.
Then when I informed him the sales rep had quoted me $5 less per lead, the sales manager told me he wouldn't sell me the leads.
Then I spoke with the original sales rep. whop told me he could honor the quoted price of $17.50 per lead. Then the sales rep. got back and said he won't honor that and they won't sell me any leads.
So this company contacted me unsolicited, quote me a price, then quoted me a higher price, then told me they won't sell me leads, then said they would, and finally said they wouldn't...
I left a voicemail for the CEO, trying to inform him of what transpired and he never got back to me.
This company used a bait and switch and when I would not pay the higher price they would not sell me what was agreed.
