Email them back and tell them that you will give them $200, the same as all 8 quotes if they line up the job for you. Maybe even throw in an extra $50 fo their troubles
What's the "Beef" BeefJerky? Did you do a little creative editing on this Craigslist ad?

Hmm, well after my quote charge of $300 that would bring us to $275; yeah I think I can swing that!
No that happened when I was copying the page or when someone else copied it
SCAM!!!!

I just googled some of the text and found at least two other craigslist areas that they are working.... bet there isn't even a job
wow...wonder if this will be the "new" thing on cl...:blink:
Just flagged both of them, what @ssholes, preying on desperate builders.:censored:
