Just got another door-to-door salesman. This time he presented me with a "peddler" license from Mecklenburg county. His ID said he was from LAM marketing located on University Blvd in Charlotte.

He was selling one of those coupon books that had a bunch of coupons for places nobody ever goes.

This one seems more legit then the other magazine company. He of course gave me the sob story that he was a college student who could not afford tuition so he is out here selling in order to pay for school.

I am located in Southpark area.

Anyone else delt with this particular company?

Looks like they just registered July 1, 2009. I bet they will be out of town in a few more weeks.

also, does 2413 Old Stine Road, Apt. 907 even exist? I think that is just the address for the agent. The owner of the company appears to be in NY.

Here's the "website" - Home (LAM Marketing)

Considering it's still under construction and I couldn't find anything else about them, I'd definitely be leery!

Unless it's a neighborhood kid I know, forget it! And whatever you do, DO NOT give them checks or credit card numbers. That's pretty fishy, a marketing company out of an Apt?

Sounds fishy to me. The ones the kids sell are a rip off too. The coupons all suck.

I have noticed that now because of so many people looking for ways to make money the door to door selling is on the increase and they are using new come ons. A very pretty young woman came to our door to inform us of the heavy construction that was going to be going on in my neighborhood as a lead in to her pitch. I said " OH , Are you with the city or something and are talking about street repairs etc" She said no she was with a remodel company. I knew then it was just a sales tactic and didnt let her continue into trying to sell me repairs....Gezzzzz

i actually bought a book from one of these guys at my place in southpark area... He told me we was from the Michigan area, and so am i.. so we started small talkin and i ended up gettin his phone number cause he is new to the area and wants me to show him around.. he actually had a michigan area code and knew about that area more than someone who would not.. like actually street/ intersection names. I only bought the bok because there was a coupon for a free oil change in there and i have to get an oil change very soon anyway.

Are these the Entertainment books? My wife and I have used them and saved some money. We wont use all coupons but being new to Charlotte its a good way to try new restuarants.

Yes. entertainment books. I have bought them in the past and none of the places in them are any good. I feel bad for the kids out selling them but I refuse to support that type of business model.
