guess ill never be a millionaire.
100 shares of what.

Sounds like some kind of reverse pyramid or some kind of scam to get people to pay $100 for ownership in a company, when you also have to pay a percent of the earnings to them, etc...

I read 90% of the ebay listing and am still confused. <G>

BTW, go back and view their "other auctions by this seller.." Just what I always wanted. <G>

seems to me you still have to supply all of your own stuff and are just paying $500 for name rights. here's an idea, use that $100 towards equipment or insurance for your OWN business.

hmmm i think i'd rather spend that 500 bucks on stripers and still have nothing to show for it.

Ok...Yeah... I got an Idea....

Everyone send me $500... and Ill let you start a mowing/landscape company in your hometown!....But Hurry... I'll only allow one per town!

Maybe I just don't get it? or Maybe I'm just Cynical?

Claims $35K/ Month.

I see a trailer with 2 scags and no details.

If I had to guess I would say they are asking about $235,000 too much!

what's even stranger is they are not in the birmingham (205) yellow pages

07-10-2002, 09:44 AM
I'm going to send my money and do as I please? I can do as I please without sending them a dime!! Looks like a scam to me. Some pie in the sky BS for someone that has more money than brains. I'm not very artistic anyway. JD

It looks like he is trying to pay for some of his equiptment that he just got about a month, hell the business is less than a month old. Send me a $500 a I will let anyone use my name and you can do as you please.:D

07-10-2002, 10:44 AM
$35,000 a month ? He must run those 2 Scags 24/7. Just stopped them long enough for the photo!

Could it be that someone applied for a loan, did not qualify, and now has developed this avenue to aquire funding???

If it walks like a duck................

I don't quite get it either.

If I'm to supply the workspace, employees, equipment, ect...then why should I send this person $500.00 PLUS a "small" percentage of my profits???:confused:

This has SCAM written all over it.

07-10-2002, 06:53 PM
WOW, I'm in. What a great idea.
Go and see, I bid already.

Just kidding. You know me better than that.

07-10-2002, 08:34 PM
What a CROCK. I wish he would share what ever he is smoking with the rest of us. That is so niave it is unbelievable.

Go view the clowns feed back. 2 negatives already.

Here is some "advertising" that the same guy is selling for $50.

You just GOTTA see this! :laugh:


Pretty much sums up what he's up to, huh? :laugh:

Why wouldn't he be "advertising" the '$1,000,000 landscaping franchise' with this particular scheme instead of anything else that's willing to pay a measly $50??? I just gotta laugh.........

07-10-2002, 11:29 PM
Nationwide chain alright. I read to where he says you can only choose from five States in the southeast. Not my idea of a Nationwide chain.
You can bet that the bids are from one of his friend, and they just wont pay him when it's all over. I hope no sucker falls for this ****.

Artistic painters.....sounds like a bunch of fairys to me (if you know what I mean) No offense anyone.

He must take some fine drugs.

Some real stupid people on Ebay, a loacl radio station talked about a few check these out:



$195 k ?? these people are on crack

07-11-2002, 10:05 AM
Kirby, those people are on something better than crack I believe. If anyone would like to rename my dog I will take a picture of him and frame it and send you a copy with a handful of hair to remember him by, now let the auction start at $50k!!!!!!

P.S. I need to pay my house off and hell it could use a new paint job and some new furniture. Thanks and happy bidding....:D

07-11-2002, 10:12 AM
For 50K Ill give you my dog!....

For an extra charge of $5 I will feed and water him, and even board him in my home!

He's a well trained dog who knows how to eat the food right off the stove!

I like that the guy from the Artistic Landscape ad says that they are "known" for thier unique twist to landscaping, yet they were just founded a couple weeks ago!!LOL!

Wow, they became "known" awfully quick!:laugh:
