Yeah but then again, they gotta pay the fee upfront and so long they pay, ebay gets paid.

Wanna hear another funny?
From time to time, I put my Web site up for sale for around 80 thousand dollars or so. Nobody ever bids, my fee is like 10 bucks but I get like 3000 clicks/month to my site for like 4-6 months :-)
After I did that 2-3 times, ebay.de never stopped sending me traffic so I haven't listed it since.

And how do you "maintain" a Homelite blower and a couple of ryobi trimmers? Oh, that's right, you buy new ones every 2 months...

anyways hes asking $4,999 (reserve not met), where is this guys reserve @ i wonder... $5k- $1700= $3,300 for accounts...

"Registered monthly accounts totaling $760 per month positive cash flow." $760/4 weeks= $190 a week...

$3,300/$760= 4.3 months cash flow.... i'de only give some1 6weeks worth of the income.... so that would be about $1,140 for his accounts... at the best this guy will see $2,500-$2,800 for the whole outfit...

he's asking twice the amount that this outfit is worth, and its a joke w/the mini van... i think what this guy needs to do is take the van down to the junk yard... and keep what equipment he will use as a homeowner for his own use.... and get about $700-900 for the van from the junk yard and say good bye to the customers and write it all off as a loss b/c he's a scrub and the amount he's taking in per month is probably from like 20 lawns....

no real LCO will buy this guy out, they'll only laugh @ him. and i appreciate the post of this ad, b/c it was a good quality joke.
700-900 for the van what junk yard are you taking them to ???? I would transport my junk cars there all day let me know !!!!!
And why don't you become an accountant ?? you seem to be good at crunching numbers .
