I just received an email from Loral Langemeier. She says she is a millionaire maker. I guess she forgot me.
A few months ago she sent me a postcard offering one of her books for free; all I had to pay was shipping. I called her staff to order the book which never arrived. I called then to inquire about the whereabouts of the book and they behaved as if I had enrolled on her course. I explained that I had only ordered the book.
Then I received the following email:
Dear RIO GUZMAN
***DO NOT REPLY TO THIS EMAIL***
“Our records indicate that we still have not received your automatic payment of $32.42, on your VISA credit card ending in last four #3807, which is now past due. No response has been received on our previous attempts to reslove this matter.
Be advised that this is your final notice regarding your account being past due in the amount of $32.42. Consequently, if payment of the above past due amount is not brought current, we will have no alternative but to turn your account over to our collection agency.
Enforced collection on this obligation could (as allowed for by contract and/ or operation of law), result in additional costs, fees and expenses and could also result in a negative credit report. We hope that this will not be necessary. If a problem has arisen that we should be aware of, please call us immediately to avoid any further actions at 1 800 608 0508. We want to assist you in resolving this situation as quickly as possible.

Luckily, after the phone conversation, I became suspicious and called my bank, fearing that they would charge my credit card for a course that I didn’t want. They advised me to cancel that card and get a new one. It turned to be very good advice. A couple of weeks later I received a call from a collection agency telling me that if I didn’t pay for the course “I had ordered” they would have to take action.
