days or 3 days.Transportation allowance will be included as we
continue to work together,you could be invited over to the company to
sign a contract with you if you do pretty well.To this effect i would
implore you provide me with your statistics so that what you need
would be taken care of.You will get $650 to start with which will be
sent to you immediately this is for your transportation allowance.
After payment has been received, the photo shoots will be taken and
