Thanks Tim-- That's just about what I thought an attempted
rip-off. At this time of year they probably tell their service techs
to try it on every customer, and I'll bet they get at least half of
Btw, it was a "VALVOLINE Instant Oil Change" that tried to scam me
(not a "Penzoil", as I first said).
I'm looking at the computer-print-out receipt right now. It's got
the store#, the invoice#, the date and time, the manager's name, the
service tech's name, and the "recommend service A/C" box is checked.
It gets even better: There's a section at the bottom which says:
"CALL 1-877-208-1171 AND TELL US ABOUT YOUR VISIT". It's connected
with a "CHANCE TO WIN $500 IN GAS MONEY SWEEPSTAKES" (in order to get
customers to call, I suppose). I believe I will. It'll be
interesting to see how the main company handles it.
