This is an IMMEDIATE RELEASE! Below is a Craigslist Ad in Kentucky for Grass Cuts. 10 WEEKS BEFORE PAY (Read the Red Print Below)! First and foremost, these people need to be identified and held out publicly. Second, the Client they work for needs to be identified and BOYCOTTED! These National and Regionals know EXACTLY WHAT THEY ARE DOING WHEN THEY SEND A HUGE LOAD OF ORDERS TO A FIRM WITH ZERO CONTRACTORS! This needs to end and it needs to end now!
Accordingly, I am going to set up a DEDICATED Email for people to send Craigslist Ads like this. If you find an Order Mill we need to begin tracking them. I am going to make this a TOP PRIORITY! I will follow up with an Article tomorrow and include the email and database form. Folks, enough is enough! Join me in taking a stand against this kind of fraud!
