If you cannot locate any Software Mart or Compu-store where you can purchase the softwares, you keep the funds for the softwares and an email would be sent to you later in the week as regards locations where they can be purchased. However it is important to send the funds to the shipping agent today. This is to facilitate the shipment of your equipment next week prior to your start up.

I have several other emails, luckily Walmart wouldn't cash it. But wouldn't tell me why so I made some complaint calls. Thank goodness. The manager said the girl at the desk thought they were fraudulent so I called moneygram and verfied that they were not valid. I'm glad I didn't take these to the bank. But dang, I was excited for a job. I didn't know it was a work from home thing until the 3rd email. They are using a real company name. I verified the name and address with BBB and website but the rest of it is fake.
