Thanks SMS. I always ask them to bring some form of documentation as proof after which they dont show up or come clean. What surprises me is that they blatantly post ads in cold storage and the likes, and when i call them up, they verify that they are allowed "by their employers" who has t...

Ahh that makes sense. ...
