elieve it or not, there was a report in the local daily recently about thieves
who broke into a golf course and stole the metal linings in the putting holes!
Apparently, these could be sold as scrap metal and what's even more surprising
is that if you have enough of them, you could make quite a nice profit! A scrap
metal dealer in the report said that they paid very little to the people who
brought in these scrap metal items compared to the price they got when they
sold their loads of scrap metal to the metal companies to be re-cycled or processed
into metal sheets. Reading this, I finally realized why I have two highly educated
friends who are in this business when they could easily be sitting in a comfy,
air conditioned office!

This money maker isn't for you if you're afraid of hard or dirty work. You
need to be comfortable working with junk (scrap metal). You will need a large
area to store scrap metal that you collect from your many sources. I trust that
you will be careful to avoid getting your scrap metal from suspicious sources
lest you be accused of buying stolen merchandise. You will probably have to
invest in a truck to ferry your scrap metal to the metal factories and you will
need to employ workers to help you out. At the rate that consumers seems to
be throwing things out, it doesn't seem likely that there will be any shortage
of scrap metal for you. It seems one man's junk is another man's money!
