- The phone call itself pretended to distribute gift vouchers for Bajaj Electricals for three correct answers, but offered them even when the answers were wrong
- We are not listed for any schemes, contests or anything, and the organizers had no clear answer for how they got our number.
- Nowhere on the location was any banner related with Bajaj (which is the name we were expecting to find) to be found. We honestly stumbled upon the event while enquiring about it.
- Bajaj Electricals, the name used to draw unsuspecting people to the event – was in no way related to it, nor were any gift vouchers from Bajaj electricals distributed.
- For a company that seemed to have gone through great effort to book a venue and organize individual presentations for participants, there was not a single piece of printed paper they actually gave anyone. No visiting cards, no printed documents of schemes, no nothing – not even mobile numbers.
- It was clearly specified that the “outstanding offer” was open only right then, and the answer had to be yes or no on the completion of the presentation – no going home and taking a day to think or anything (more likely – no investigating this company for reliability)
- The “gift vouchers” were for a holiday for two at one of some specified locations, where we still would be expected to be paying money.
- The “presentation” itself was more like street haggling, where you are offered higher investment opportunities and when they are refused, cheaper ones come up.
- Why would any reputable company have an investment opportunity open for an evening where a decision is to be made without looking at any offer document, without any verification, office address, official representatives, or even simple visiting cards? The way I see it, if they can’t afford a basic official set up, my investment is unlikely to be safe with them.
- Strangely, even their “managers” who came in to dramatic effect with approvals of surveys, and special offers, etc. didn’t even bother to provide surnames. I have yet to see any professional investment related thing being presented or negotiated without any written documentation or proposal of the exact offering and terms for consideration before investing in it. No official venue, no visiting cards, nothing.
- For an investment related event taking place in a hotel, not even tea or coffee was offered. We were asked if we wanted water.
- In short, they were simply trying to his susceptible people and get money out of them as fast as possible.
