The other types of common street-spam: The scam artists who want you to work from home and the victims who spent money at expensive 'learn-to-be-rich' and 'buy property without spending money' BUY HOUSES CASH property flippers/investors etc... everyone who wants to litter while advertising instead of using normal forms of advertising that law-abiding and honest businesses use.
The best method for tracking them is GOOGLE! Although they all use unlisted mobile phone numbers (called bandit numbers) they usually screw-up and publish the numbers somewhere else on the internet. Some of these 'business-people' also use 'bandit web-sites'...Googling usually will reveal enqough clues to utilize the same method revealed in the above sample-sign-tracking. Determine the state of origin and start searching free city, county, and state corporation and occupational licensing searches. I have even uncovered web-sites which provide instructions on avoiding and hiding from 'The Sign Nazis' (Code Enforcement Officers & Investigators) including 'tips' on what to do if caught in a sting operation. There are ven 2 web-sites dedicated to Street-Spam...one fighting it and one defending it:
www.causs.org Citizens Against Ugly Street Spam
www.causs.com Citizens Against CAUSS
Both provide very useful information and Code Enforcement Contacts.
The following is copied directly from one-such website and provides the Officer/Investigator with some in-sight on how bandit signs, bandit web-sites and bandit phone-numbers work...with this understanding it makes it easier to learn to track them down! I invite my fellow Code Officer/Investigators (Sign Nazis) to read the below info taken from: http://www.louisbrown.com/productinfo.php?Product=StreetSmartInvestorHouseBUYINGANDSELLINGWebsites
Remeber; the key-words used: 'The sign-nazis will not be able to easily track down...
And there's MORE!
En EspaÃƒÂ±ol Ã¢â‚¬“ Both the House Buying and Home Selling Websites are now available in Spanish as a first or second language as an optional up-grade.
Bandit Site - You can now turn your House Buying Website into a "Bandit Site" by purchasing a separate, privately registered domain name. This feature allows you to "mask" your website with a different theme (look-and-feel), company name and unlisted toll-free phone numbers. By utilizing your main domain name on all your "legitimate" advertising (business cards; yard signs; print ads; flyers, etc.) and your Bandit domain and unlisted toll-free phone number on your Bandit signs, the Sign Nazis will not be able to easily associate your company with your bandit signs.
YourCompanyWebAddress.com - Choose and use your own company domain name for your StreetSmartInvestorWebsites.com website. If you don't have a domain and don't know how to register one, we would be more than happy to help .
email@YourCompanyWebAddress.com - You can have up to 5 email addresses using YourCompanyWebAddress.com and have them delivered to your existing email box. More emails are available on request.
