MADISON, Wis. -

Most of us have found ourselves on the other end of a convincing sales pitch at one point or another. How should you react? What are the questions you should ask? What are the potential red flags?

In the last couple months, News3 had an opportunity to tape one of those pitches, an effort to convince a local consumer to transfer her timeshare deed. A News3 investigative team used hidden cameras to record the hour-long presentation and then, did research and showed it to experts to get their feedback.

The result is "Inside the Pitch," a News3 primetime special set to run Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. on WISC-TV.

The program will also run Saturday from 5:-5:30 p.m. and Sunday from 12:30-1:00 p.m. on TVW.

  • PHOTOS: Madison store helps collect hundreds of Teddy bears for police

    MADISON, Wis.--A west Madison store is part of an effort to collect hundreds of stuffed animals to donate to six police departments in Southern Wisconsin.

    Todd Merryfield, owner of The Learning Shop at 714 S. Gammon Road, said the store is collecting the bears for officers who use them to help comfort children with whom police come in contact.

    "This is a great way to support what (police) do," Merryfield said. "Those are the kids that need something like this to reassure them, calm them down, and let them know that things are all right."

    Nearly 500 plush animals were donated Tuesday, a Learning Shop spokeswoman said. The Madison store's effort is part of a larger initiative through the Bears for Humanity organization.
