Me: (replying to a public inquiry that included a budget) Hi. I’m able develop the site for you. Here are my references… However, it would require a bigger budget. Can you do XXX?
Client: Thank you for your quote. However, this is my 4th time inquiring for the site and I’ve gotten a lot of different quotes. I know it’s possible to develop it in the stated budget.
Me: But you haven’t hired anyone in that time?
Client: It can be done. Goodbye.
