I received a letter from a liquidation company which was sent to my home yesterday. The title was: "Final Days! Absolute Emergency Rug Liquidation". It was also mentioned "For the first time since 1898, ... Liquidation Company has been assigned to privately liquidate twenty million dollars worth of rare hand-knotted rugs." The claim goes on and states: "The entire inventory is one-of-a-kind and is marked down absolutely 79% the original ticketed price on sales for absolute emergency liquidation. As a preferred customer, you will ... save additional 15% off starting today."
There is no date for the start and end of the liquidation! Besides, 75% off plus additional 15% because I am so special would come to a total of 94%. This means I only pay 6% of the value and the price of the rug to buy it!! The liquidation will be held in Pasadena, a city some 20 miles north east of Los Angeles. Who are these people? Do they expect potential customers to believe in these big claims?!
What do you think?
