    I do lead generation for clients and one of the referrals I have contacted me asking to generate 50,000 leads a month. I wrote what I wanted to start things out with but then they started negotiating.

    They lowballed me to start out but this one kept the cake. When I agreed to their negotiating. They decided to write this..

    That's just insane..

    Don' bother with low paying "customers". They 'll suck your energy out of you. Energy you could have used getting the high rollers.

    Don't waste your time.
    But that again I do not know what leads you referring to. I was in the lead biz and there are no real "leads" at that price. You might get some shitty worthless opt-in email data or crap co-reg. He might be looking at some lists rather than leads.

    If you want to play with him send him order form for $3000 and sit on it than give it back or get some shitty data for $100 and send him. (PS: I used check by fax and nver dealt with PP, chargebacks and Joe Blows)

    lol I would even hard time saying that to someone if I were in their shoes. I couldn't possibly live with myself paying so little to compensate for leads.

    I almost wrote.. Well, why don't I get the leads to you for 0 pennies. I was like wow.. Definitely not dealing with them, but I was like wow.. Oh I accidentally meant to say "give them to me free"

    The audacity..
