Hi, Barbara V . I have done a whois before I posted here and did send e-mails to the admin. I tried calling too.
now I had problems e-mailing her. I found out why. I was able to send it to her.
you have to put both the quiz and the NDA in a zip format. Then attach it to an e-mail and try sending again. Most E-mail providers limit on the size you can send as a attachment.
I am a computerwiz and I am dieing to a comptuer type job. I notice the economy is bad. I am in michigan and it's hard finding any job. I applied for family video block buster and even home depo. I applied to them never got a response.
I am 19, and I currently know programming and computer hardware engineering since I done this as a hobby on my spear time ever since 6th grade.
I know this type of job is just right for me. Something I can work at home will also attending college.
I applied for as a comptuer tech I got a certification from an ISO company as a computer tech and a html,css,php,c++ programmer. Yet I can't get no job.
I think colman media is not a scam but are very picky. The quiz is much about how you think and how you write. They could care less if you are a computer wiz or not. They want someone to be able to decribe errors and also follow directions even if the directions are kinda flawed themselves.
I sent a e-mail to her last monday and I get no response.
I am angry becaue it wastes my time. I am still looking for a job to help pay for college. Also college tuitions went up also. The prices on books gone up. Soon college will be so expensive that I can't pay for it.
I think they are legit people. If you don't get a response it's mostly because you failed that quiz and they most likely don't want to spend the time to e-mail you saying you failed the test. I got another job offer as a php programmer and what they told me my test will be checked by jan. So I really am kinda upset with the job situation here.
if you can give me any advice I would appreciate it.
I hope I get a e-mail back from AMY.

| PLEASE READ THIS LEGAL NOTICE CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU FILE A LAWSUIT OR EVEN WASTE TIME THINKING ABOUT IT. It has been done before, but never successfully. In fact, the last dodobird who tried it ended up being ordered to pay more than $77,000 in attorney fees ($65,000+ to my attorneys and $12,000+ to my co-defendant's legal advisor).
If your attorney is worth his salt, he's going to tell you that the expense of filing a lawsuit you can't win is a whole lot worse than any "damages" resulting from messages posted on this insignificant little chunk of cyberspace.
NEWS FLASH: I didn't just climb down off that ol' turnip truck yesterday. I'm well aware that expressing a negative opinion, relating one's personal experience, and restating provable facts are all legal in this country and do not constitute libel, slander, or defamation -- so you don't want to play games with me, and you sure don't want to start something you aren't prepared to finish. I don't take threats lightly, and I don't accept bribes (or did you call it a "mutually-beneficial arrangement"?). I'll turn you in faster than you can yell, "ARREST ME, I'M SCUM!!"
Do yourself a favor and turn your legal team loose in greener pastures.

In closing, I would like to remind you once again that it is still legal, in this great country of ours, to express a PERSONAL OPINION, as long as it is presented as opinion and not as fact.
And finally, all you scammers out there will do well to remember that TRUTH IS AN ABSOLUTE DEFENSE against charges of libel, defamation, and slander... so if you're operating just a hop, skip, and jump ahead of the law, you might want to think twice before doing anything stupid... (AND SHAME ON YOU!!).
