Post Kirby Vacuum Cleaners: Who will stop the confidence trickste
Hi I'm a resident of Ukraine (it is one of the whilom republics of Soviet Union). I should like to ask the people of U.S.A.: Have you heard that we have tiresome network marketing representative who walk from house to house and distribute a Vacs Kirby for $ 5000? Is it true what the cost of this vacuum cleaner in the U.S. 1000 dollars? If this is true, they are rascals. It will be interesting to know your opinion about this. Excuse me for bad English. :)

1 $5,000.00 seems to be extremely-expensive!



2. We moved your post to this more-appropriate forum.

Same board. Different forum!

More active please. From such incursions nobody is safe! I am referring to sales agents, if you have forgotten.

It seemed clear, to me, that you were being gouged.

Ultimately, the best defense a consumer has is education.

Then, the consumer stands the best chance of not falling prey to scams and price-gouging.

Increased competition should help, but that might take a long time to materialize, in your area.

Along a similar vein, try shopping around.

Moreover, your government could properly regulate the industry in order to prevent price-gouging.

You could ignore the salesman's stated price and try offering your own. Then the both of you could haggle and, hopefully, arrive at a mutually-beneficial deal.

Try bartering; the salesman's product, for example, in exchange for your skills, in another matter.

Try renting or leasing the product until a better deal comes along.

Other than that, I'm not sure how else to stop people from acting in their own best interest. It seems to me that there will always be individuals who will try charging excessive prices when opportunities arise.
