who ever gave you that information does not know their @zz from a hole in the ground and it is not gonna help you when the crap hits the fan.
the people who have the name first are not gonna care that you were foolish enough to print 15,000 post cards not to mention printing them with someone else's name on them.

why you printed 15,000 post cards is a whole other topic in itself regardless of who's name is on them but we will stick to the topic at hand.

clearly you registered with the county you live in and not the state and the county registration has no authority what so ever and if you did register with the state they would have stopped you before you even started because the state is the end all be all.

there are 3 companies under greenscapes in nj and 2 are fly by nights and the third is a million dollar company and when they catch wind of it they will act accordingly.
no one is gonna bust their @zz building up a name only to find someone else using it and let that slide, it is just common sense.
my friend is in morris county and got his balls busted by a guy in mercer county.

why would you want a name that any other business has? what happens if someone does not have your number handy and they look up greenscapes and get directed to the other guys?

having the same business name as another will always hurt you more then it will help you and it looks to be as you are letting your wallet make the decision instead of common business sense being your guide.

just trying to help you and save you some hassle down the road because you will either have to deal with i now or later and it will only be harder the longer you wait.
