Posted on 08/22/2012 8:31:40 AM PDT by kevcol
St. Louis, Mo., Aug. 17, 2012 The Better Business Bureau (BBB) is urging caution to anyone considering doing business with representatives of Advanced Marketing & Promotions (AMP), an Alabama-based business managed locally by Dean Stanley.
The warning comes in the aftermath of an event near St. Louis Power House Church this week in which St. Louis area residents were offered $500 worth of food vouchers in return for signing up for a prepaid debit card. Police were called to the 4000 block of West Florissant Avenue on Tuesday after hundreds of people jammed an area near the church to fill out applications for the cards. The event ultimately was shut down.
Stanley, who came under news media scrutiny last year for his role in a federal cell phone giveaway program, said he had spoken with an official of Power House Church about hosting a debit card sign-up event. Stanley said the official, Howard Walker, told him that he believed the event would be a good way for the church to raise money for its programs. Walker reportedly would receive 75 cents for each application submitted.
Stanley said he had been told that each applicant would receive a voucher for $500 in free food, but he told the BBB he could not provide proof of the offer or say whether anyone ever had received such a voucher. Stanley said that when word began circulating about the voucher giveaway, everything blew out of proportion.

OMG! (I rarely use that term, but it’s all I can think of.)
Where are the white people?
Where are the white people?
The last thing they look like they need is more free food.
It’s their human right to free food and free pre-paid debit cards, for that matter.
Mooches are not victims of scams. They are the expected result and if they want to quit being victims, they should quit being mooches.

[ Yawn. This is getting to be such a cliche’... just one more example of stupid lazy people being tricked into fulfilling negative racial stereotypes by behaving like parasites looking for a handout. Talk about racial profiling, some negative stereotypes write themselves...

You ever wonder about the way the Dims love to box people up in stereotypes that are “culturally acceptable”
However they just LOVE to sterotype sucessful minorties that are not asain as “selling out” their own culture because they stereo type other cultures as always being unable to advance on their own by definition...
The free food vouchers seem to be drawing a bigger crowd than at Obama’s campaign rallies these days.
Wid dis, dey have mo’ money fo’ dey chillens new LeBron James shoes.
We be racists, so we be a hidin’.
