Telemarketing scam

Recommended Posts

Just took a call from some Bevis that went something like," I retired from the marine corp after 20 years and started a large craft distillery, did great for several years, and then the craft industry went wild and crushed me, so I stepped back and built a relationship with 100's of distributors in the US over the past few years.......   sign with us and sell 1/2 skids and skids  at net 45, after you pay a one time $3500- fee to set up the program to distribute galactic wide......

Guy sounded like he was 20 years old, working in a call center.

I wasted 7 minutes of my life. Don't make the same mistake.

Lol, there's another one claiming to be from <insert celebrity name here> TV show that wants to highlight craft distillers.  Total scam.  They want you to pay them $ to produce a segment for "the show."  My wife has a company that does this, so I know.  Content producers don't ask the subject of the segment to pay production costs, unless they are wanting to make something to shop around, maybe.  Besides, the production costs they mentioned were outrageous.  I'm betting we're not the only one to get this call.

We got this call too. I used to get these pay to play calls all the time when I worked in pharma. It's definitely a real deal, but it's not an earned media thing. Not worth it - even when you've got a multi-million dollar budget...
