    It sort of makes me wonder if this type of pitch has ever worked for him in the past...

    Know that feel. One thing you learn when you sell services online or have a presence on the boards, you get some strange people that hit you up on Skype.

    It probably has. The amount of absurd messages one gets in email spam, sms and skype has financial backing somewhere.

    What a loser.

    The world is full of useless bottom-feeders like him unfortunately.

    They have no idea how to do business so they hassle people who do... and act as though they are doing the real businessman a favour.

    I've said it before - why do stupid people always assume the rest of us are as stupid as them?

    Well, you were nice enough to even reply to him. These guys are more like scammers, and think people on skype are as stupid as they are.

    I constantly get people wanting to sell me likes, shares, tweets, and so on.

    I ask you, what are the chance that a random person will want this? Gotta be a low return on he time investment.
