If you had checked out that broker a little better, I might be buying your business right now...

I found a listing for a web based business that really interested me (Profitable Online Drop-ship B2C). The ad did not have all that much information, so I clicked on contact seller, which I knew was a broker. I was "required" to include my name, email and phone number, so I naturally assumed that the broker would contact me either by email or by phone and give me answers to the questions that I had asked. Instead, I got an AUTO RESPONDER message with NO ONE'S NAME at the bottom. I understand the reason for the non-disclosure, but the second half of that form is for marketing purposes. AND the brokerage company appears to be just a lead generation service for anyone that pays them $100 a month. Pretty poor way to sell a business. If you're proud of the work done at your brokerage... put your name on your email!

As a Broker, I could not agree with you more! There is ample reason to use Non-Disclosures; but for the Brokerage itself? What are they hiding?
