Quite some time ago, a year or so I’m pretty sure there was a story on here I have been unable to locate about some guys selling home theatres out of a van.
The story went along the lines they would pull up next to you at a bus stop or walking down the road. They would then ask if you would be interested in a cheap home theatre system. They would go onto explain they are here to do an install and they have one extra one they don’t need and fully paid for. They even have paper work to show you.
Today I was at a set of traffic lights and a guy in a white Mercedes van motioned me to wind down my window. The van had Victorian plates and green P plates and with 2 Aussie flags stuck to the back. He then went on to ask if I was interested in buying a home theatre. Straight away I knew what the story was and replied no. Sure as following a script he told me they had a spare one they could sell off cheap.
Is there a crime here? Or if people buy off these guys do they deserved to be ripped off?
