OK.... So I'm in the process of legitimizing my business. Started small last year.... late in season, kinda scrubbish:blush: So last Fri. I went to the county office and registered my DBA - Picture Perfect Lawn & Landscape - I went to a local ad publication yesterday to place an ad to run next week. The rep there calls me today to let me know that she came across someone else using "Picture Perfect Landscaping" She's gonna get me a copy of a classified that he ran a few weeks ago, so I'll have some more info soon. It seems he's been placing ads w/them occasionally since 1999, and uses a P.O. box in the same town I'm in, yet I've never heard of him.... I researched this name in county records before I registered (required to) and even checked phone listings, and yellow pages. Checked phone listings and Dir. Assistance today..... seems to be no such animal. Anyone else had a situation like this......... If he's not enough to worry about, I don't know how I should follow up at this time.
