    I think people in this country have no math skills or this guy would have been spotted with out having his so-called friends betray him. I was doubting him as I read his first post his age sounded wrong to have succeeded but I let that slide what sounded weird to me was account numbers employee numbers truck numbers trailer numbers and oh yes equipment numbers.


    53 employees. (including the workers, my mechanic, my secretary, etc etc) ok that sounds reasonable sort of.

    One huge hangar that I put every thing in. 10 trucks 14 trailers oh here’s the first clue the trailers out number the trucks??? They sometimes do in smaller companies you may have a dumping trailer and a landscaping trailer or a heavy equipment trailer but 10 to 14 ratio I read that like 3 times thinking I read it wrong.

    I have 437 accounts, ranging in size from a $15 postage stamp yard to a massive $1200 yard that we do twice a month(its 35 acres, and has a ton of trimming and bush hedging, VERY rich people). And its 52 mowers, 52 mowers and 53 employees one per BS and 437 accounts per week at most you’d need 16 guys to cut that but he claims 53 it was obvious he had no clue what he was talking about before anyone every came out and said they knew him.

    checked with three different crews today, (the ones that dont exist) and none of them own digital cameras, or know how to post pics on forums now this one made me smile the most was he saying he has only 3 crews what are they 17 men each hehehe or was he claiming to have 15 crews or more but after 3 telling him no he gave up.

    I don’t care if some one has 1 post or 4000 and has a millennium membership if they don’t know what they are talking about they are gona be all to easy to spot iv seen enough guys with 20-30 posts that know more then guys with 800 so I am always skeptical but this guy was so fake from his first post I don’t see how he was believed at all.

    I agree and that's the reason I started questioning, I also spot all of this since his first post, and the more he kept talking the more I realize it was a lie.

    I also still think some more people were invloved in this or let's say he was replying with other screen names also.

    For me it's aesy to apot a lier cause I was one in my young days, the thing is that many people in here couldn't see it and belive him, and many people came hero for advice and if we let this people around this forum will turn into a place full of s.

    I thought it was kind of funny that when everyone was questioning him that he went away for awhile. Then all of a sudden a couple of new users registered in sept. 03 came to his deffense.
