Customers have a new scam going...

Recommended Posts

Having just been stung at work, thought to share with you guys...

 

What happens

 

1- Machine to be repaired is dropped off and name of owner is given, address and contact number.

 

2- Customer phone, asking to machine to be repared as soon as possible, as he needs it....

 

3- Machine is repaired quickly..

 

4- phone customer to tell machine is ready.

 

NOW, this is where the scam starts.

 

5- while talking to the customer, customer then tells he can't get there, so he sends a friend over to collect.

 

6- the friend collects the machine, leave details, name, all bogus

 

7- customer phone up a week later and starts abusing you, asking where the machine is.....

 

8- you tell him his friend has picked it up, his friend is an "unknown" person.

 

9- customer threatens to sue and give the company a bad name, suggests a new machine would smooth things over.

 

10- after many phone calls, a new machine is given and all is well.

 

 

This has happened to me, a week later, another guy tried the same thing.

Not something I want repeated.

Issue a repair ticket to the original customer, you don't show the ticket, you don't get the goods back. (Regardless of how much they winge about it on the phone.)

 

Or, if they claim not to have got their goods back just tell them to file a small claims procedure in the courts and you'll be happy to let the judge settle it, especially if the customer told you on the phone to give the goods to someone else. Now what are the chances of a random stranger happening to walk in and ask for the persons goods by name?

 

Customer says "I'm sending a friend to pick up" ask what the freinds name is then get ID from whoever arrives to pick it up, if they don't match then don't give them the gear.

 

And ask the person who collects it for their drivers license and write the number down in your records.

well that's not really a scam, more along the lines of you dun stuffed up.

 

I wouldn't have given the machine to anyone else other than the person who made the claim first. As director said get a erpair ticket or something. That way if you don't have the ticket? you don't get the machine. Can't make it? well no machine.

Use legitimate means to identify the third party like licence numbers or a photocopy thereof. Problem solved.

I was scammed recently.

 

This is a warning to men who may be regular Coles or Woolies customers. Over

the last months I became a victim of a clever scam while out shopping.

Simply going out to get a few odds and ends has turned out to be quite

traumatic. Don't be naive enough to think it couldn't happen to you or your

friends.

 

Here's how the scam works:

 

Two very hot 25-26 year-old girls come over to your car as you are packing

your shopping into the boot. They both start wiping your windscreen with a

rag and Windex, with their breasts almost falling out of their skimpy little

T-shirts. It is impossible not to look.

 

When you thank them and offer them a tip, they say 'No' and instead ask you

for a ride to another store. You agree and they get in the backseat. On the

way, they start undressing. Then one of them climbs over into the front seat

and starts crawling all over you, while the other one steals your wallet.

 

 

I had my wallet stolen June 4th, 9th, 10th, twice on the 15th, 17th, 20th &

24th. Also July 1st, 4th, twice on the 8th, 16th, 23rd, 24th, three times

last Saturday and it's very likely to happen again this coming weekend.

 

So tell your friends to be careful.

So apart from what's already mentioned about "No Ticket, No Ride" and full valid ID from the "Friend" before the PC hits the counter, one of the nasty reasons I used to grab Balarc reports for was it'd then give me the chance to report all the License Keys as stolen...

OP thats not a scam, you/your place of work was just stupid enough to as director said not issue some kind of repair ticket or obtain the proper details of the friend.

Rob's just jealous.

 

No one laughs at his old jokes.
