Meat Crime Blotter

02/05/10 Sheriff’s deputies are asking people to be wary of a salesman offering a free freezer for buying a certain amount of frozen meat.

A Umatilla man told a sheriff’s deputy Wednesday that around 5 p.m. Saturday, a man came to his home selling frozen meat. The homeowner purchased $613 worth of meat and the salesman told him a free freezer would be delivered the next day.

The man put the meat he bought into a freezer he already had.

The man did not hear from the salesman the following day and called the company, identified as Direct USA, but never reached anyone.

On Tuesday, the salesman called and told the man he would come by Wednesday to drop off the free freezer.

At approximately 10 a.m. Wednesday, the salesman arrived and told the man that in order to get the free freezer, he had to purchase another $500 worth of meat.

The man declined.

The man said while they were talking, the salesman borrowed his dolly to unload the free freezer anyway. The salesman then filled it with roughly $300 worth of the meat the man had purchased on Saturday.

The salesman then put the free freezer and meat back into his truck and left; he also took the man’s dolly. (Umatilla, FL)
