I have been cold called twice now by these folks both times purporting to have a package they sent to us returned asking if we have recently moved, which at the time we had just relocated our offices. The scam begins with the "secretary’ asking the question and if they get anything besides an absolute negative response they will transfer you to the hard sell sales person. They record all of these calls so that later they can show where somewhere during the call you agreed to something, never what you thought it was. In our case they were trying to send us NFL jerseys as a promotional introduction to get their name out in our market area which is already served well with low cost vendors. During the conversation in which she was continually distracting me with the jerseys and dinner when she was in the area next time, I had told her that we were not needing any safety glasses at this time as I was well stocked and business was slow right then. As I was concluding the conversation, which was very pleasant and interesting, she said "Okay well I will ship you 48 pair of dark and 48 pair of clear and two boxes of ear plugs" at which point I said NO emphatically, we did not need them but being curious as to whether I might want to contact them for future orders, I asked the price. It turned out to be 400& 37; of what I pay now so I laughed and told her she was going to have a tough time competing here. Needless to say, we never received the jerseys as promised but they could have thrown several in and still made quite the killing on one order. It is very easy to see how some lower level employee could get distracted and agree to something that they are not authorized to buy and USSP has it on record that they were authorized to ship the product. Then it is a fight to get them to issue a RA to take it back. This is highly unethical and very deceptive in their business practices and has to be skirting very close to fraud if not outright criminal conduct.
