sounds like a company recruiting local suckers to make money in someone else's area too me. If they are out of Cleveland why do they need contractors in Michigan? The answer is to steal work only to give it back to you with 50% less pay! A deal like that is too good to pass up!

I'm waiting for one of these companies to name themselves "thenextcompanywhowillscrewyou.com" I mean why try to hide it? It goes exactly the same 9 out of 10 times. The one time it goes differently the end is the same it just takes longer.

I think that's best case scenario. They sent me an email recruiting. They say check out their website. Their website is really generic and has no phone# or address. The email says to send them all your info to apply. EIN, copy of drivers license, insurance, ect. I think it's just a made up business fishing for info. I just wanted to know if they actually exist.

They probably exist, many of these companies sign up contractors in areas then tell their clients that they have coverage.

My son has been looking for a cheap fishing on Craigslist-anything that floats with a motor. He got all geeked up last week when he found a great deal. It was a 10 year old boat with 85 hp Mercry, trolling motor, 2 post seats, live well, fish finder, new tires on the trailer. $1500! The add said all the right things too...
Husband died 2 years ago...left me his boat
Single mother...need money
Have to sell soon before being deployed and moving overseas next month.

There was a picture of this really nice boat....and there was duct tape over the state registration numbers. If nothing else, it was a great teaching moment for Junior on how to spot a good scam.

Preservation adds may not be quite that obvious, but there are several key phrases to watch for.

We have been awarded a large contract

We have huge volume in your area

Make great money being your own boss

We offer direct deposit

We need you!

And my personal favorite, "We'll give you our pricing sheet after you send us your signed contract."

Like Mr Hack said, a lot of times these companies don't even have the work yet. They are only trying to build a network to show their client they have contractor coverage. Sometimes the work is there but they can't find any suckers to do it. Either way, most of the time it's going to end badly for you. It's just a question of how bad.

The Nat's do the same thing. They make you jump through hoops, then they give you a price sheet. Then you start working and they access to an area on the web where you can print out all your signs, stickers, and woah...what's that? A completely different price sheet than the one they originally gave you. much lower, of course.

At least you get a price sheet. I get nothing. Except work orders that say do it for the allowable. Except that is a big secret.
