Thank you, Andrew, for pointing out the potential liability in the situation. William Lewis and
others who ask that question need to know: I'm protecting NOT the company, but myself. I am not the

But, to be fair, I did work for them once and was treated well (got paid on time, no problems, very
smooth relationship). They aren't a bad shop....they just want to use you for marketing leads. Most
are not my information to give out.
