Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
i do alot through craigslist (its like a second income) i buy and sell for more
or buy and fix and sell for more
stuff like that
makes a good profit

i see stuff like this all the time
some go as far as to say they are craig the owner and he teamed up with someone for a big chance to become an exclusive member..stuff like that..

i have an eye for it but apparently some dont
lots of people lose money though wire transfers and stuff like that

basically

if you have to fill out a bunch of personal information
its a scam PERIOD
never give away your info

sure a phonenumber for an interested customer may be normal or your name..
but never give out anything other than that..
