The delivery note definitely gets your attention. It says final notice... Immediate contact required.... and final attempt.
But don't be fooled... it has nothing to do with anything you ordered.
Dave Zweber found the notice on his front door.
He says, "my thought was I had some leftover Christmas presents that I had ordered and I'd forgotten about... or that were coming to me."
Zweber called the number on the notice, but didn't get any answers. He says they kept asking for his name and address.
Zweber says, "They refused to say the name of the company or why they wanted my name and address. They were just very adamant that they got it first and I did not give it out because of being suspicious."
I called and talked to a manager who said the company is Rocky Mountain Hyla.
The local distributor wants you to call... to tell you he's delivering one of several free gifts... a cutlery set, various vacation packages, or a certificate for a free turkey or ham.
The catch... you and your spouse must sit and listen to a 30 to 45 minute sales pitch on the Hyla... a combination air and vacuum cleaner.
I was told the product... which is sold worldwide... ranges in price from $200 to $2,000.... and the Hyla and its' parts can only be purchased from a distributor.
The bottom line...the note is purposely vague so you'll call and set up an appointment.
The Colorado No Call List has really cut into those cold calls you used to get... so sales folks have to use their best advertising techniques to get you to call them.
Hyla's been operating in Colorado Springs for a little over 3 months... but i'm told they do business in 30 states and 43 countries.
