Buyer beware – bring the vasoline


FOLKS; this is one of the best scams I ran across in a very long time.

I noticed that in the very near future I would be needing tires for my vehicle. Recently  I saw a sale advertised that was too good to be true, and it was.  Buy 2 tires and get 2 free from NTB.

NTB (National Tire and Battery) ( the battery must be the beating they give their customers) so I called them to get  a price.

Price

$ 133 99

1

Qty.

Taxes and fees not included.

Warranty

60,000 Mile

As you can see – 1 tire is 133.99 – 2 tires would be 267.98 – after taxes probably in the neighborhood of  300.00 dollars. The guy I talked to said they had them in stock and could install tomorrow.

I said fine; what is the grand total. He responded $654.97.  I thought I misunderstood him and asked again what the total would be; he repeated $654.97.  I said;  the tire are 133 and change apiece that makes it 266 plus tax; right???

Here comes to hook. This deceptive dude (I am sure he is only following the company’s policy) said; you have to buy the complete package – road hazard – mounting – balancing – alignment to get that SPECIAL price.

You have to know what my answer to him wasYOU GOTTA BE SHITTING ME!!  THAT IS ONE OF THE MOST OUTRAGEOUS SCAM I EVER HEARD – YOUR COMPANY SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF ITSELF – THE EXTRAS COST MORE THAN THE TIRES.

Moral of the story. # 1 Never trust anyone. #2 always read the fine print – # 3 always be sure of what the bottom line is before you sign on the dotted line  – #4 and most important, have it in writing.

NTB gets the top bull-shitters award this month for trying to scam their customers.
