    some are not scams, just rich guys trying to make the low levels work their butt off to help them make a ton.

    You have to take like 16 photos, before after. There is a lot of paper work and you don't get paid unless every detail is accurate. The pay is minimal. I have received several emails with all the details... A lot of paper work and you may need to travel to get work done.

    A friend signed up. They wanted him to drive to one property 100 mi. for for $20. There are many companies like this.

    Has anyone contracted for Coast 2 Coast lawncare? I answered a ad on Craigslist and was called by California office. Answered some questions, they sent me docs and tax form. I didn't send anything yet being skeptical so I sent some questions and made another call. They are part of US Best Repair Service anyone had any dealings with them? Looks like coast 2 coast handles the lawn care for US Best? Any feedback would be appreciated!
