Junk Sign.

Copy cat of the Ugly Yellow Sign with similar message....however even they are now moving up to billboard, bus bench and bus display ads so probably not effective to post such a sign on a public fixture.

In our area they are ripped off by the city workers and trashed.

Bandit signs. Are they effective?

I would advise those engaged in the delicacies of real estate to NEVER use such methods.

The rest of us, however, will continue.

What is funny about this question is the reader of the question is left to assume they know what the purpose was.

Maybe SIMONE is a gorilla marketing specialist. The purpose may be to get question like, "How's that working for you?"

I would see if it violates local signage code. In our area it is not permitted.

Our office has a Credit Repair lady who seems to do very well. She even hires a FT assistant.  I asked her where she got her leads from? Sam, these credit repair signs on the streets are all scams. I only work with referrals.  I give them a written warranty that in 90 days their credit score will be improved.
