Now, A Narc That Car Training Video Shot By Promoter In Parking Lot Of Giant Eagle Supermarket Chain; ‘I’m Not Going To Talk To Anybody,’ Narrator Says
UPDATED 11 A.M. ET (U.S.A.) A grainy video promotion for Narc That Car was shot in the parking lot of one of the largest grocery-store chains in the United States and posted on YouTube.
The narrator in the video talked about the “countless cars that are in the parking lot” of a Giant Eagle store. Pittsburgh-based Giant Eagle is one of the largest food retailers and food distributors in the United States, recording about $8 billion in annual sales.
Narc That Car is a Dallas-based, multilevel-marketing (MLM) company that says it is building a database of license-plate numbers for use by banks and companies that specialize in repossessing automobiles.
“This is how simple this business is, folks,” the narrator says, as a camera pans around the Giant Eagle parking lot and captures one car after another in video frames.
“I’m not even going to talk to anybody,” the narrator says, noting he did not know the address of the particular Giant Eagle at which he was recording the video, but would obtain it online.
Giant Eagle did not immediately return a call seeking comment on the Narc That Car video shot in its parking lot and the practices of Narc That Car and its promoters.
The narrator cites Giant Eagle’s name in the video, panning on Giant Eagle signage and a nearby gas station.
“I want to show you how simple and easy this business is,” the narrator intones. “I’m just going to jot down some public information of the license plates. That’s the way this works.”
The narrator continues, “As a matter of fact, I don’t even know the address of this Giant Eagle. I’ll just look it up online and get the address when I get home. Or, [if] I’m at a gas station, I can do the exact same thing. So, this is really great how simple this business is. Come on and join us [via] Cash For Car Plates.”
In the the video, which appears to have been shot on a dark and dreary winter day, the narrator raised no issues of propriety, safety, privacy or legality. The narrator did not, for example, instruct Narc That Car members if permission needed to be obtained from companies such as Giant Eagle to write down the license-plate numbers of patrons.
Nor did the video provide any instruction on what Narc That Car members should do if approached by a store manager or patron while the Narc That Car promoter was writing down license-plate numbers or capturing them on video.
