I called the number as advertised on TV to inquire about the selection of above ground pools. Guy shows up on 5/9 at 730pm didnt leave until after midnight on a weekday.
I was bamboozeled to signing this god for saken contract for a 8800 above ground pool 18x48. The very next day (i know ***) i decide to read what i have signed and immediately contacted my sales guy via, Email and said i wanted to cancel. He then called me and said ok ill take care of it. I then asked is there anything else i need to do?
he said no ill cancel it. So i go on about my day and when i got off something told me to just send a text to make sure i had canceled in time etc. He then called not text back and said i was good and would receive my 400 deposit back. I was like cool.
I went out Friday May11 and purchase another above ground pool from a local store 21x52 for 3000.00 and took it home. (this how much i was sure this was over) I then get a call on 5/14 Monday from the financing department from blue world pool stating that they were calling to go over my financing terms. I then said oh no i canceled dont need to. hung up.
This guy called me back 5 mins later Kevin Fisher stating my three day time ran out and in order to cancel i needed to pay 4400.00 or just continue on with the process i then said NO i dont want it good bye. (hung up) he called right back and said take it or pay 4400 or we will put a lien on your house and foreclose on it. MY HEART SUNK AND I IMMEDIATELY FREAKED OUT THINKING WHAT IN THE HECK HAVE I SIGNED...so not wanting to alarm them and buy myself sometime to think I said ok fine ill just go through with it he then said ok financing will call you later to go over terms. I immediately started looking up lawyers that deal with consumer fraud, consuemr law deceptive trade practice etc.
My goal was to not alarm this company until i one disputed my deposit with my ccard company, closed my cking account and put an alert on my ssn before they went haywire on their end. So after seeing 3lawyers and speaking to over a dozen. I have decided illl take my chances fighting this company. I will not allow them to bully me into installing a pool i cant afford and dont want.
They quoted me a rate of 35% a payment of 229 for 144 months that is obsurd to pay on anything other than a house that long. Ill be ***....so as of now this is my status. ...Blue world pool thinks everything is going as planned mean while im researching and have closed all my accounts they have access too and hired a lawyer who will deal with them going forward.. Ill take a breach of contract or any other consequences but i will not stand to be bullied by these *** who have been taking advangtage of ppl for so long.
I hope my story will encourage others to fight as well.
DONT LET THIS COMPANY SCARE YOU WE STILL AHVE RIGHTS ALTHOUGH WE SIGNED ON THE DOTTED LINE WITHOUT READING AND THROUGHLY UNDERSTANDING...DONT FEEL *** BECAUSE OF THIS.....I HAVE A BA IN BUSINESS MANAGEMENT AND I WORK IN CORPORATE AMERICA AND THEY GOT ME TOO. U JUST WANT TO MAKE UR FAMILY HAPPY BY GETTNG A POOL NO NEED TO FEEL *** OR DUMB EVERYONE MAKES MISTAKES ITS WHAT YOU DO AFTERWARDS THAT COUNTS.....
