I recently received an email from an aggressive, prospective buyer interested in a human services company I represent. He sent a laundry list of financial questions about the company. I answered some of the high-level questions but informed him that it would be best if he spoke with the owners before we got too deep into the weeds.
This recommendation did not go over well. Clearly annoyed with me, the prospective buyer claimed I was not representing my client well because it was my job was to get him the information he needed to determine whether to proceed with making an offer.
