Okay, I bit...Almost

Now understand that this is not word for word and actually I do not remember all the added costs, but it kind of goes like this and as this is an interactive message, you cannot stop it to question it and all you can do is go forward.

 

                                                                                              Okay, I bit... Almost

 

You’ve seen that TV commercial advertising this “Blue Tooth” type miracle that attaches to your car’s dashboard and by tuning to an FM radio station you can perfectly hear received calls through your radio’s speakers... And this “Blue Tooth” like miracle is ­only ten dollars ($10.00) plus shipping and handling.

 

Well, I bit on this... almost.

 

Your call is answered by the best interactive message I’ve ever heard.

 

Now understand that this is not word for word and actually I do not remember all the added costs, but it kind of goes like this and as this is an interactive message, you cannot stop it to question it and all you can do is go forward.

 

First off the shipping and handling is $6.95. Not so bad, so, okay.

 

It is at this point that the voice asks for your credit card information and for only $16.96 it’s still a good deal, so okay.

 

However, after they have your credit card information...

 

“Because you ordered now, at no additional cost, other than shipping and a handling we are going to send you a second receiver absolutely free.”

 

Understand that you cannot say, “No, I only want one!”

 

So now the cost is the original ten bucks plus $13.90 in S&H. for a total of $23.90.

 

So, okay, so maybe you’ll give the second one to someone.

 

However...

 

Now, of course you need the attachment to attach the receiver to your dashboard and that is $16.00 and as you have two receivers you’ll be needing two attachments at $16.00 each plus  S&H (have no idea of this cost) So now – excluding S&H for the holders – there is an added cost of $32.00 for a grand total, so far, of  $53.90.

 

However...

 

And you’ll need two of our special size lithium batteries at...

 

It was here that I stopped biting and hung up.
