Blacklist Group

I just saw that banner up there tonight. It's actually a good idea!

It's a great Idea,except for the fact that paying for a blacklist that doesn't yet exist until members actually build it up is a tough sell in my opinion. My question is why should I pay to build up that list? If it's still around after a few years and they have a database built up that is useful I would consider signing up.

not to mention that I don't care about the dead beats who live in Idaho, or Kansas, or anywhere further than 30 miles from me.


I did see the banner though

I could swear someone on here had a site like this.. maybe Kelly's Landscape?

Notice it says $50 discount.. but only $30 when you go to next page??

$199 per year.. No thanks! I'd rather take a chance on getting stiffed

We started one just for the Dallas Market several years ago. The list was not only for non payers, but customers that were chronic complainers, weird, or any reason LCO's dumped them. We mailed to 70 LCO's, called, etc. and everyone thought that was a great idea, but few ever took the time to enter their names, so it failed. And it was Free!
