I love those Progressive commercials with the slimy insurance agents who work for “another” company. These guys always stretch the truth and get skewered for it.
My friend Deborah has a tall, pretty, willowy friend, Amy. Amy’s friend Julie needed money as she lost her job. Julie, being tall and beautiful also, told Amy she considered taking a nude modeling job to earn cash. Amy recommended Julie accept the job as she did nude modeling and enjoyed it. So, Julie accepted the modeling job but immediately received another full time job offer. Julie didn’t want to stiff the modeling job so asked Amy to fill in for her. Amy hesitated. She only recommended Julie take the modeling job to be supportive of her friend; the experience part was a fib. Continuing to support her friend, Amy now really does have nude modeling experience. Nice to be supportive but oh the consequences.
But back to the less than truthful company come on. Jack is always looking for a deal. I tell him if it sounds too good to be true, it is. Does he listen? No. A free lunch and promise of 30% return on his money got him signed up for a tax lien workshop. He insists it’s the real deal when he arrives home so I bet him it wasn’t. The next day he complains about the website and admits maybe he’s wrong. The workshop lead him to believe properties had only recent liens with owners ready to pay within 90 days to remove the lien. Most of the website properties were 2 years in arrears including the Florida motel about with no customers and a backhoe parked in front. Not going to turn that one around soon to make a few bucks.
This tax lien company certainly deserves the liar liar pants on fire award and the commercial,
