So I back out of my garage this morning only to see this bright pink sign taped to the stucco of my house.
Gee, looks important. So I stop the car and get out to check it. Turns out to be spam.
The @ssholes - an outfit called City Wide Services - website citywidepros.com - has this sign saying they're going to be in our area tomorrow painting curb address numbers and that if we just leave them some money they'll paint a nice curb address for us.
It's obviously a scam. The website was just registered in February of this year (http://www.nsspy.org/archive/hostmonster...).
I'm calling my council member (Lightner), as well as the San Diego Chargers. These guys use the Chargers logo on their site and in their ads. I'd bet money they're not paying any licensing fees for it.
Anyone else get these? It's one thing to leave a business card on the front door. But to tape a posted sign to someone's house has got to be illegal. Am I right? Does anyone know?
