Jodi Johnson (10/26/2007 11:58:46 PM): no
Jodi Johnson (10/26/2007 11:59:08 PM): This is in view of our not having an office presently in the USA, Canada and major European countries. You dont need to have an Office and this certainly wont disturb any form of work you have going at the moment

Jodi Johnson (10/27/2007 12:01:41 AM): Your task is to coordinate payments from customers and help us with thepayment process. You are not involved in any sales. Our sales manager sells products.
Jodi Johnson (10/27/2007 12:01:51 AM): Once he makes a sale we deliver the product to a customer (usually through COURIE SERVICES)

Jodi Johnson (10/27/2007 12:02:02 AM): After this has been done the customer has to pay for the products
Jodi Johnson (10/27/2007 12:02:08 AM): About 90 percent of our customers in Canada,USA AND EUROPEAN COUNTRIES prefer to pay through Certified Cheques based on the amount involved
Jodi Johnson (10/27/2007 12:02:15 AM): We have decided to open this new job position for solving this problem

a_port_huron_medic (10/27/2007 12:04:25 AM): i'm a bit skeptical
a_port_huron_medic (10/27/2007 12:04:40 AM): i dont really understand why you would want to pay me $300
Jodi Johnson (10/27/2007 12:05:13 AM): SO ALL WHAT YOU WILL BE DOING IS 1. Receive payment from Customers

a_port_huron_medic (10/27/2007 12:09:09 AM): hello?
Jodi Johnson (10/27/2007 12:11:34 AM): Hello Are You There?

Jodi Johnson (10/27/2007 12:12:13 AM): did you understand the job?
a_port_huron_medic (10/27/2007 12:12:30 AM): basically a check will be mailed to me
a_port_huron_medic (10/27/2007 12:12:51 AM): and all i have to do is cash it, keep 10 percent of the money, and send the rest to you?
Jodi Johnson (10/27/2007 12:13:14 AM): yea good
Jodi Johnson (10/27/2007 12:13:37 AM): Can You Be Handling That spect On Our Company Behalf
Jodi Johnson (10/27/2007 12:13:39 AM): ?
a_port_huron_medic (10/27/2007 12:14:01 AM): why don't the checks just get mailed directly to you?
a_port_huron_medic (10/27/2007 12:15:31 AM): i don't understand why your company would want to give me 10 percent when the checks cuold just be mailed directly to you
Jodi Johnson (10/27/2007 12:16:58 AM): The reason they can't send the check direct to me are ; (1),The cost of coming down to the state ,and to receive the payment and get it cashed is too cos,(2)If the payment are sent here down to me in UK,it take a very long time to clear and it in one way or the other delay me,(3) if I cash check that are out of UK the Govt would charge 25% of it as tax,but with you been our middle person,it is a tax free,all we realise is just the ($300) I pay you and all the rest of the fee.And I'll arrange a personal check for you to clear up taxes at the end of the year after each tax estimation
Jodi Johnson (10/27/2007 12:17:21 AM): SO WE NEED SOMEONE THAT IS HONEST TO HANDLE THAT ASPECT FOR THE COMPANY
a_port_huron_medic (10/27/2007 12:17:50 AM): hmmm
a_port_huron_medic (10/27/2007 12:17:57 AM): i'm a pretty honest guy.
a_port_huron_medic (10/27/2007 12:18:12 AM): what do i have to do to get the job?
Jodi Johnson (10/27/2007 12:18:17 AM): THATS GOOD THEN
a_port_huron_medic (10/27/2007 12:18:25 AM): i'm still a bit skeptical
a_port_huron_medic (10/27/2007 12:18:28 AM): but it does sound good
a_port_huron_medic (10/27/2007 12:18:51 AM): i guess i can't really go wrong, as long as the check clears
Jodi Johnson (10/27/2007 12:19:00 AM): YEA
Jodi Johnson (10/27/2007 12:19:17 AM): How Long Is he Payments Gonna Take To Clear?
