    Lets see....YOU are trying to steal another LCO's customer and YOU want us to give you advice on how to do it? YOu really are a clown aren't you!?

    The current LCO has every friggin right in the world to counter your clown offer. Now, I have no problem with you going after business but when you are intentionly lowballing another LCO that YOU KNOW services these clients, and when he counters to keep HIS CLIENt you try and come up with more underhanded crp to steal his business, that is pure sorry, newbie, lowballer, crap coming from a hardup wannbe LCO! Hell, you better be glad it isn't my company cause I would do it for FREE to teach you some business respect. You have been in business 1 year, I promise you at the way you are going you be outta business long before the guy whose clients you are trying to steal. It is CLOWNS like you that drive down fair market prices!
