This sounds to me something like my OH and his partner were approached with. Chappie comes around to their yard, I am compiling a list of stonemasons in the area area, for a fee, I can put you on the list, this will then be circulated to the undertakers and their websites, so that the customer can see all the florists, stonemasons grave care etc. In the area.
if you don't allow me to put you on the list, you could miss out on work.
they thought it sounded a bit like a protection racket, pay me or the others on the list will get the work. they told him where to go as they get plenty of work under their own merit.
is this what you mean to start James or have I got the complete wrong end of the stick?
