    Last night it was reported someone in Mn. was using my lawn pictures on their website. Now tonight I get another report that another guy might be using one of my pictures. I went to check and all 5 of 5 pictures were mine and one of them is ME mowing a lawn. Below the front picture it says "Your lawn can look like these if you choose to hire us!!!" Can you believe this CRAP?

    Does anyone know who this site belongs to? http://www.mikeslawncare.com

    Last winter we found pictures on sites in S. Carolina saying on their website that they mowed these lawns and your could look like them too. What's up with these BOGUS guys? Can't they take pictures of their own lawns?

    Eric, you better hope your customer's don't find out he will cut them for $30 or $40
    Somebody here has to know this guy or at least be close to him. Post the area code and ask around.
    What do you make of the heading? Do you think he is posting threats to customers who owe him money?

    Worse comes to worse, get Stone to hack him... hehe

    Wow, Eric, I just replied to Kutnkru's post and I really think now that you should give this Mike kid a COLLECT phone call and see what he's all about! Thats a shame. This is turning into a real epidemic!

    That's a shame Eric, if I were you,Id be so mad right nowI'd be shaking.I hate theft of any type,and this is personal,time to take care of this before it gets any worse.Is there any legal recourse you have?These LCO's must be bottom feeders anyway,if they are this low.
