    Had a local guy here advertising a list of 70-90 customers. Emailed me his gross sales last three years all in the $6k range each year. Asking price...$425, not a customer over $23/cut. His plan "wasn't to build a business, he just wanted something to do on the weekend." I had to hang up before I pissed myself.

    If you read what he just said. They are not signed contracts. Thats great if you put estimates out to 450 clients, but out of that how may have signed on? Maybe 50? Who knows with those numbers.
