So i got a call from an indy friend of mine in Ohio.. Decent practice, but the guy is real lazy in terms of prospecting...

 
So he proceeds to tell me that since his office windows look directly into the parking lot of a CPA, and that despite multiple times of approaching the cpa for a referral relationship he has been brushed off.... He is now recording the license plates and looking them up on some website that he pay $49 bucks a year to be part of that gives him name and address of the owner...
 
It is insane(although it might work... moral/privacy issues aside)..... What else are people doing that skirts the "legal" issues.....

My buddy showed me this program he downloaded for his cell phone, not an app, that he can call any number and have any number show up on their caller ID.


So we were having lunch today, and my phone rings, it was my ex-gf's name and number, so I answered and it was actually my buddy sitting right across from me.
 
I think it's messed up.
 
I guess you could call prospects that wouldn't answer because they see your number, and instead put in a different number.  I wouldn't personally do it, but you bringing up moral/privacy issues made me think of it.

The poster on your wall in your bedroom doesn't count as a real person.

I read a few years ago about a church doing something similar. They didn't want a strip club in their neighborhood so they photographed the cars in the parking lot and used the license plate numbers to get their address. They would then mail them a postcard with the picture of the car in the strip club parking lot and a note saying "we saw you in the neighborhood and wanted to invite you by". I thought it was pretty funny.

Edward Jones newbies (such as myself one time) work without an SIPC sticker on the back of their car.

Hahaha!  Is that the same place where the Sheriff's brother got "caught" there, so they could no longer run the plates?  There was something about "glory holes" at that place, too????
