    I didnt want to make it sound like a tut. I was just wondering a quick question. I was going to have a friend call a CPA network for me to get it approved. he has good social skills and good english, the only problem is he is from india. Would this pose a problem? I ask because i think it would be obvious if they are getting a call for an application "John Smith" and the guy is indian. See what I mean? Would this matter?

    Should the guy tell them up front they are calling on my behalf? not sure about this, thanks.

    Is it a super white name? Some Indian's have "american" names. Don't say he's representing you (just in case). Some networks are dicks. The AM probably won't even ask. You could always get your friend to just make a little quirk after he says his name like, "traditional Indian name, eh?"

    Why not just call them yourself? I do not like speaking on the phone and such, but for the first interview call I always just answer their questions and be as nice as possible. Then I always talk to the AM on Aim or E-mail, just ignore their calls. They always get the hint.

    thanks for the answers. yea, I will have hm call them, that way the origin of the number isnt a problem. the problem would be the indian voice. lol i like the 'traditional indian name huh?" haha.

    thats what i was sayng, perhaps i could just say 'employee', that he is doing it for me. maybe I will tell him not to say anything about it unless they ask. then use that. and then hopefully that works
