    I'm not naming names but it sounds like a chap in the new members area.

    Don't quote me on it as I could be getting all daily mail on an innocent party

    Peter,

    I have not seen this advert, it has been reported before I viewed. I will contact you directly as I may need this for defamation reasons, seems someone is telling un truths for obvious reasons.

    No need to highlight it any further here, so will contact you directly if possible.

    Thank you Peter

    Its very frustrating on one hand there is some one on Gum tree saying they have been scammed By happy canvassing . Then you have happy canvassing saying there being set up by someone. It doesn't make it any easier when both the add and complaint have vanished from Gum tree. The happy canvassing add is now on EBay Must say if it is a scam its agood one as all the paper work is very good and after speaking to them they know a lot about window cleaning canvassing.

    I had a chat with the happy canvassing bloke about a week ago on the phone. The alarm bells started ringing when he said that he wants 30% deposit (that is fair enough) AND he will give me a list of newly canvassed customers at the end of the week and then he will collect the rest of the money. When I suggested that Id rather meet every night and pay for customers found that day and clean them the following day and meet in the evening again and so on and so forth he said he doesnt work like that. Well you will not be working for me at all then sunshine. Since then I have found a local lass who is happy to work EXACTLY the way i want it and is very good at canvassing so happy days. I am not saying that happy canvasing is a scam but looks like it well might be
