Sales firm dupes hundreds of people

10-02-2012

A firm selling a miracle product for varicose veins has duped over 800 people. The firm’s salespeople allegedly targeted seniors on the street offering the product for free or the symbolic price of one crown on condition that they would give them their name and address and sign up to membership in a club which would offer them other low-cost products. In reality people were committing to pay the firm over 4,000 crowns within a period of 30 days. Police are investigating the case and have asked anyone else who fell for the trick to come forward.
