Judging by the reply to address, I would say that it could be another contractor trying to cash in on people starving.

Re: Boy These Are The Only Ads We Are Seeing


I responded to the ad and told the guy what a moron he is. And greedy and a thief. These people disgust me!!! Yes, I am likely out of line but maybe it will put a little guilt on him. He's a painter trying to get the job done for almost nothing and collect his fat check. You can bet on it.
