This post about scam Vickers First Aid kits appeared recently, detailing the way Vickers First Aid kits representatives targeted low income areas trying to sell first aid kits valued on their own website at around $50 to people for $200.
Is this a scam? Well, it depends on how you approach the issue. Some might say that sending out representatives to lie to people in low income areas and selling them products at four times their actual value is a scam, some might say that it is simply corporate scum behavior.
Whether ‘trusted’ New Zealand company Vickers Marketing are really running a scam, or whether they are simply doing their best to take advantage of those in low income areas is a matter of semantics.
All you need to know is that if you want a First Aid kit, don’t buy one at your front door.
