Beware of Pop's RV Sales!

I saw an ad for an RV by Pop's RV located in Sarasota,FL. I had to sign a multi-page legal document in order to make an offer. I could not inspect the unit unless I signed the document. My offer was rejected and I assumed that would be the end of it. I later purchased a TT form a private owner. The salesman I worked with later emailed me other RV's he thought I might be interested in. I politely informed him I was no longer interested and would he kindly remove me from his contacts. Evidently he did. But now, I have been receiving solicitations from another individual from Pops. Twice now I politely replied that I am no longer interested and would he kindly remove me from his contact list. Here is his reply.

"Hi Jay,

As is normal in the age we live in once you sign up for a website the emails will come until the end of time, I do not have privileges to change that, you would have to pull the plug from your end."

As you can see, this is email is generated solely by him, not automated.

I will deal with it. Just a FYI.

There are various ways to block an email address. Try googling you're set up to see how .

You shouldn't have to deal with that. Point 'em to the following link to the FTC web site - and point out that the CAN-SPAM Act requires them to provide you with a mechanism to "opt out" of future emails - and violating the act can result in penalties of $16,000 for each email. Here's the link to a straight forward explanation available on the FTC website:

On automated emails quite often there is an unsubscribe option at or near the bottom of the email in very small print. I have 4 email accounts and they all have a spam option. If I label someone as spam all future emails go to the spam folder.

The first hint that you were required to "sign" documents to even proceed would have triggered a prompt reply of "buh bye"

Maybe that is why he has risen to the lofty position of RV salesman.

Be careful, that may have some additional scam consequences.

My niece sent me a Craigslist ad and asked me to look at it because it was an incredible price for a used TT. It had pictures and pictures of serial numbers ad it was in wonderful shape. The guy was in the military and had to sell and it was at the "ApplePay" lot and it would be delivered to your front door. (keep in mind only $14,000 trailer) The catch - you had to buy it before you could inspect it and all money refunded if you didn't like it when it arrived.

Poor kids like my niece might fall for that stuff and I hate it. The pictures were probably robbed off a legitimate rvtrader ad. If I knew who to turn that stuff into I would.
