“For the past 10 years or more scurrilous ’salesman’ operating from white vans (white van scam) have been peddling brands such as Acoustic Studio Monitor, Linear Phase and Dynalab to unsuspecting victims. It’s a simple scam, they’ll pull up alongside you in a carpark or at the lights and offer their wares at an unbelievable price, usually as a result of ‘over ordering’ or quitting ‘end of line’ stock.
Typically these salesman are well versed in the art of the hard sell, and are only too willing to mark down the equipment from the usual $3995 to an unbelievable $600.”
