SCAMS!!!

I don't know if any of you have seen this or experienced it yourself, as I have ran into these punks.

It's call the White Van Speaker Scam. Please read below:

Divinci D-50 Divinci D-710
Do a search for " white van speakers " you'll see how this scam goes
You'll want watch this Fox News report
MyFox Los Angeles | Speaker Scams Redux

Make sure you report this scam to :
1) Local Law enforcement
2) Attorney General
3) City and State Department of Revenue
4) IRS
5) Local TV or Newspapers

Most of these SpeakerFleas
1) Do not obtain proper permits to "sell out of a Van"
2) use lies, fraud, trickery and intimidation to make a sale
3) Most do not collect,report or pay their required by law taxes
for sales and income


Report Suspected Tax Fraud Activity
If you suspect or know of an individual or company that is not complying with the tax laws, you may report this activity by completing Form 3949-A.
http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f3949a.pdf
You may fill out Form 3949-A online, print it and mail it to:

Internal Revenue Service
Fresno, CA 93888

The speakers sold by the speakermen are of exceptionally poor quality,
typically obtained for less than $50 from a local distributor.

The speakers themselves have been reported as potentially damaging to any amplifier they are connected to.
The risk of damage stems from an impedence curve that in some cases may drop
below 2 ohms, which may overheat, short out, or permanently damage an
amplifier not designed to handle such loads.

Do a search for " white van speakers " you'll see how this scam goes
Guy in suv or van drives up to you has these $3000 speakers , extras ??
You can have em for a deal you can't pass up .
He will try to get you to give him $50 or more up to $1500.00 for these $40 china speakers.

Look out for the guy in the suv with the **** and bull story about
the extra home theater system he's got to unload.

He will tell you it's worth something crazy like 2000 or 3000 dollars
show all kinds of crap like receipts , invoices , magazines , ads sheets, etc.

He'll even point you to the company website to prove they are worth the 3 grand. Don't be fooled !

So when he lowers his price to $100.00 you'll think you got the deal of a lifetime. $3000 speakers for $ 100 bucks ,
no you got a crap set of $40 speakers and paid $100 or more for them.

Just do a search for "white van speakers" and you'll see that not only are
they worth only 40 bucks shipped from china , they may also be UNSAFE and damage your system.




Watch out for the speaker guys in suv's or pickup trucks and vans
selling home theater equipment.

Many of the sales take place in the parking lots of Best Buy, Home Depot, Circuit City , Banks ,
Carwashes , Gas Stations , Construction sites , etc
heck they will even flag you down while you are driving down the road.

Do not fall for the white van speaker scam , they are looking to rip you off !

If you see them , drop a dime , CALL A COP , let's get these scumbags of our streets.
Get your phone out , Take a PICTURE , get the PLATE number and
CALL the Local POLICE !!

Law enforcement WILL issue citations, as rarely do the speakerguys obtain the proper permits and license to sell "out of a vehicle".

In Pennsylvania, the act of selling white van speakers is punishable by up to five years in prison and up to a fine of $10,000 .

Bought speakers out of the back of a van or suv ?
We found the guy that's been ripping people off.
Robert M Sullivan dob June 03, 1968

Isn't it time we insist that our elected officials
put a stop to this scam.
Support a law that madates a minimum
fine of $10,000 or 5 years prison

Please copy , repost and warn others

Yea, I got "approached" by these scammers three times so far. Total douche bags if you ask me. Guess its just my luck. All three times, they were in late model F-150's. They are some persistent SOB's for sure. First time was actually on the road at a red light while they were honking their horn and screaming out the window to get my attention. The other two times were in the parking lots of Home Depot & Lowes on Veterans Boulevard in Metairie.
