I would appreciate it if you could REFRAIN from sending me samples that have any form of pornographic content in them as a coder has done in the course of this bid.
I am not interested in pornography nor do I want any sort of pornographic material on any of my machines, deleted or not.
You may send me business and professional samples realted to the project I have posted.

I have looked at all your bids and would very much like to accept a bid and get on with this project.
However, I am unable to accept a bid at this time. According to the notice below, Rentacoder will not allows payments or escrow by Paypal which is my prefered method of payment.
1. 9/20/2006 All PayPal Users:
PayPal has a bug that is not allowing us to lookup accounts by email address reliably. As a result we are unable to always connect a payment with your account, reconcile it or process your manual payment. This isssue was escalted to a PayPal account manager.
2. 6/12/2006 Non-U.S. PayPal Users:
PayPal is not reporting the verification status on non U.S. users correctly. As a result, it prevents us from accepting the payment, and the user is forced to send us the payment again manually. This issue wa s escalated to a PayPal account manager on 6/12, verified by support as a bug, and is being worked on by PayPal. Anticipated fix date (as of 10/3/2006) is 3-4 weeks.
As you can see, this notice is outdated and yet payments are still not being allowed by Paypal.
This is clearly an inconvenience to both software buyers and coders, so Rentacoder needs to address this issue immediately or stop accepting bid requests.
This is my forst time using this site and I cannot afford to divulge sensitive details of my credit card and bank information to Rentacoder.
There is too much fraud on the internet now and that is why we have payment ssytems like Paypal. I see no reason why Rentacoder should want so many details about one's credit card and bank information.
This information can be used fraudulently in the wrong hands and I don't think Rentacoder can give anyone any gaurantee that their credit card an d bank information is totally secure on their system.
I would therefore invite coders to bid directly via my website ([url removed, login to view]) using our contact form. The coder selected for the work should be willing to accept payment to their Paypal account directly.
Thank you all again for your interest and time.
