I'm not the best with spelling and puntuation, but that would be my first indicator to not call this guy.

Its not a scam as far as I know. I just don't think they know what they are getting into, or how to price a job. They post almost daily, so I think they are desperate for work.

That word starting at $750 got my attention.

Four words. Illegal game of chance.

Gotta love those exclamation points, though.

He said it would leave you breathless. LMFAO It may not leave the customer breathless but he sure will be.:laugh::laugh::laugh:

The only thing that would leave the customer breathless is, the amount of cus words flying out of his mouth when the works not complete.

chuacro hit the nail right on the head. Nothing these guys are doing is wrong or in any way scrub or lowball. They're just using time tested techniques for getting potential customers to call. I most certainly might entertain the thought of selling packages as cheap as $750 a year. I also reserve the right to charge more for larger lawns. As long as they have a legitimate scenario whereby someone would qualify for the $750 package then they're not doing anything wrong.

Yeah the key word is "starting". I would be willing to bet he hasn't done any for 750.00. But He probably gets some calls. Really same kind of marketing that car dealers do and they still sell cars even though no one ever gets the ad price
