I had a call from a guy that use to work with my main competitor. He was their service guy , he approached me with a customer list that he maintained while he was working for them. He wants to sell the info , Its quite a comprenhisive list , and tempting to buy.
But he also wants a job . What would you do?

Honestly! This guy is pretty un ethical and un trust worthy. He can turn around and do the same thing to you some day.

I wouldnt touch him with a 10 foot pole

do not purchase the list but hire the tech...do you guys know how hard it is to find techs?

really, what are you going to do with the list?

and if this tech leaves you, are you going to worry about clients he will sell to someone else?

if you keep your clients happy, then there is no problem.

right?

I am passing on him , he says he has 500 people on the list , but I wouldnt be able to trust that he wouldnt do the same to me.
Come to find out he was let go for a drug problem so I definatly dont want that .
