The first contact with Rachel was a quote from her on the APIs I had requested from Mesochem on Alibaba. I responded and said I wanted them. She responded and said what was the purpose of the order. My reply was that I was conducting research on the quality of generic HCV treatments in order to make treatment more affordable for the financially challenged. Her next query was what organization I was working with or for. I told her I was a reasearcher with the local university and she could ship it to my office there. She said "university on the address, no problem". So I wired the money, had it addressed to me, with CRM after my name in caps (looked good to me....), under my name, I put so & so university, my address and my cell number.
Thats it. Greg said mention research and I spun a little more involved tale than I outlined above, mentioning some associate professors in an eastern European country and so on. Well, I sent the money, she shipped FedEx that afternoon and it was here 4 days later-3 weeks ago today.
Thats how I did it
