Other Scams – Fine Wine InvestmentPosted on September 19th, 2010 2 comments
Whilst we at Adscams are always on the lookout for charity advertising scams, we also keep and eye out for other scams.
Last week I had a phone call from a company who asked if I was interested in “Fine Wine Investing”. Firstly investing isn’t high on my priorities list right now and as I am not a drinker, investing in Wine was not of interest to me.
I politely said “no thanks” to the sales guy on the phone and I was then asked “why?” – ahh Mr wont take a polite no thanks, I bet he went to sales school.
I explained my lack of desire to invest in anything at the moment and my dislike of Alcohol and he then quoted an article in “The Times” as recommending a fine wine investment. This perked my attention somewhat – I recall last year receiving a very similar phone call from a company trying to get me to invest in “Land”. – I still said no thanks.
He then continued his ploy to get me interested by using NLP techniques and trying to convince me I was not doing myself any favours by not investing. – Wont they learn – the more you push me the less likely I will do any business. In the end I said NO and he hung up.
Knowing a friend who does like his wine and keeps a special fridge to store his favourites I thought I would seek his expertise. He kindly forwarded me this cut out from the Sunday Times:

Hello. impressive job. I did not anticipate this. This is a remarkable story.
Thanks for your text. I would also love to say that your health insurance
dealer also utilizes the benefit of the actual coordinators of a group insurance.
The health insurance agent is given a summary of benefits desired by a person or a group
coordinator. Such a broker really does is hunt
for individuals or perhaps coordinators that best match
up those demands. Then he presents his referrals and if all parties agree, the broker formulates a binding agreement
between the two parties.
