We all face adversity in life. Everyone thinks to himself with certainty that this will never happen to him. Such people are quite common. They are absolutely confident in their exclusivity and infallibility.
There are many people who once fell for the financial tricks of scammers. Do you know what they say in this case? Yes, they got into trouble once. But now this will never happen to them again, because they have become more experienced and smarter.
It remains not to argue and agree. Although, in fact, there is not much difference between these two types of people. The Internet is a meeting place for sellers and customers. There is honest and dishonest business in it. Sometimes it's hard to tell the difference.
You say it's not? In fact, the Internet environment is legally very poorly controlled. This frees the hands of scammers who want to be closer to your money. They are good at it. And so far there is no reception against scrap.
Sales American Store - Creation Initiative
On the market of services and goods for thousands of years there has been supply and demand. The wheel does not need to be reinvented. Everything is already there. If athere is a huge demand for some product or service on the market, then resourceful people will always find an offer.
Do you want an exclusive iPhone 6? How about this gadget at prices far below the official ones?
Sales American Store - an online store - was heard by many of those who seriously thought about buying a new iPhone 6. It worked successfully for a year, had a circle of its regular customers and authority in the market.
The company sought to satisfy the demand of the average Apple consumer - to provide a gadget at a price below the market, in the shortest possible time and with dubious guarantees.
How was it?
Start. Sales American Store
Sales American Store was founded in early 2014. At first, she did not make sharp and negative movements in relation to her customers, she clearly fulfilled her obligations to the buyers of her products.
By August 2014, the Sales American Store team had earned its reputation. The company works promptly, fulfills its obligations, opens its new offices and stores in Russian cities.
This created brand loy alty among customers. Moreover, the company offered to purchase a new iPhone 6 for a modest 19,990 rubles. It was a record. The price was 7,000 rubles below the market price.
An advertisement was launched on social networks about the launch of sales of cheap and real iPhones for Russians. They need to fully pay 19,990 rubles for pre-order andreceiving phone.
Some said Sales American Store was a "scam". But brand loy alty has already been earned.
Our first customers - the original iPhone
The first customers were not long in coming. Regular customers of the Sales American Store online store became pioneers and made a pre-order by paying the amount of 20 thousand rubles.
There was no reason to be afraid. The VKontakte online store had 150,000 subscribers and an excellent reputation. The first customers received their gadgets in their hands and were very pleased that they managed to purchase the original "apple" for 7,000 rubles cheaper.
This information stirred up social networks and caused even more interest in the firm. Some said that the Sales American Store was a scam that would come to light sooner or later. However, it was difficult to counter the many real successful transactions with the company and satisfied emotional customers.
First customers received a new iPhone at a low price. They won 7,000 rubles on this. Not bad, right? They have recommended the store to their other friends. Let's say that one person was able to attract 4 friends. The price of 7 thousand rubles is 4 new customers who will bring 80,000 rubles in advance for a new exclusive product.
Thus the thought that Sales American Store was a "scam" vanished on its own. More and more customers.
Sales American Store reviews were top notch. It would seem fromEveryone benefits from cooperation with an online store: customers receive goods at a price below the market price, and the seller receives satisfied and regular customers.
However, the laws of the market are such that as a result of the interaction between the seller and the client, the seller very often wins. Even if it seems to the client that he "snatched" a sensible and worthwhile offer, you should always be prepared for the worst.
Expert opinions about the online store were divided into 2 camps: some were in favor, others were wary, but they could not provide any arguments against. Increasingly, social media was warning that Sales American Store was a "scam" that would sooner or later show its true colors.
What did they say?
According to market experts, fears about this stock immediately arose. How can it happen that the company works at a disadvantage and makes only happy people around? If a person was 16, then one could believe in a fairy tale. But we all understand that this is impossible.
The pyramid was built in such a way as to attract the maximum number of customers. They invest the full cost of the gadget in the form of an advance payment and wait for their goods. They just can't wait.
To say that Sales American Store (online store) is a "scam" means to say the right thing. For every satisfied first customer who purchased a new gadget for 7,000 rubles cheaper, there are, on average, three new attracted customers who brought incompany 60,000 rubles.
At the very peak of popularity and orders, the company collapses, closes telephone and bank accounts. It becomes completely inaccessible to communicate with its clients.
From this moment the fairy tale ends and life begins.
This opinion is considered correct. The company did exactly that, and not otherwise, with its customers.
Result of the case and detention
When it became clear that there was fraud and a pyramid scheme in the case, Sales American Store received increased attention again. Only this time with a minus sign. Leading Russian TV channels covered the topic on TV screens.
A criminal case was initiated, Part 4, Art. 159 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation in relation to the company Sales American Store. The main suspect, Gennady Kalyadkin, was detained. At the time of his arrest, he was the CEO of Sales American Store and was involved in financial fraud.
What is the fate of the other members of the company is unknown. They failed to arrest. At the moment, legal proceedings have begun against the main person involved in the case of fraud on the Internet. The prosecutor's office promises to punish those responsible and return all funds to their rightful owners.
It's hard to say what will come of it.
Sales American Store scammers
In social networks, a front of opponents and dissatisfied customers of Sales American Store has unfolded. They demand the return of illegally taken money and punish those responsible. Currently the official groupdissatisfied customers "VKontakte" is about 3,000 thousand people. Each of these people lost 20,000 rubles. You can calculate and think about how much the company earned on this.
To what extent it is now possible to punish the guilty - the court and time will show.
Meanwhile, the real prices for iPhone 6 on the Russian market became known. According to official representatives of the company, about 32,000 rubles (16 GB) will have to be paid for a smartphone. The maximum volume - 128 GB - will cost brand fans 47,000 rubles. This is the real cost of smartphones from an American manufacturer.
These figures say to the layman that the Sales American Store is a "scam". You can clearly see how much the cost of the smartphone was underestimated in order to make the offer as attractive as possible.
Despite everything, Sales American Store positioned itself correctly, the reviews of the company's employees and satisfied customers were at the level, the scam took place.
You always need to think about where you invest your own money. On the downside, no one wants to work. Especially one who offers you tempting favors, relying on your naivete and gullibility.
