    When he goes out of business.....his clientele will be looking for someone anyway...so why buy the rights to them? If he showed you the names, just wait for him to go out of business and then bid on them.
    Who's to say they will stick with you if you bought his business....Basically he's selling you the potential to earn that money...you can do that on your own.

    If it really intrigues you, have someone verify the value of the equipment, but I wouldn't give him anything more than one months receipts for the clientele, and then fair market value for the equipment. Otherwise walk away.....no.....run away!
