Seeing Dollar Signs

Out for lunch today I saw one of those roadway signs: “100 Signs for $299!!” I’ve been seeing quite a few of these lately (although I have definitely not seen 100). It’s made me think of a scam. I’m not sure of I have a nose for identifying scams or a brain for creating scams. But anyway, here’s what you do. And, just for the record, I didn’t think of this until I saw a potential giveaway one day.
So you find someone who will print the signs for $179 (100 of them!!!). You create the sign to say “100 signs for $199!!!!” Then you put the signs out in a place where Mr. $179 is not advertising. You get a call, take the order, then place the order for $179 with your competitor. You just made $20. Do that 8 times and everything from there on out is profit. The signs should last for quite some time and you don’t really have any expenses to keep up.
The only reason I thought of this is one day seeing a sign for $179 on one side of the road and $189 on the other side. I wondered if the one guy used the other for printing. And like I said, today, I saw a sign for $299. That dude’s got some real balls. He wants his investment back right away.
