    Josform the Woh????

    I recieved an email today in a business setting starting

    Josform the Woh

    Body of email.....

    and no signature, from a company I was going to be buying $40k in products. I will leave off the name of the company for now to get an unbaised response. the email also has a bit of an errogant tone with a few CAPS words. Well, most of all does anyone have a clue what "Josform the Woh" mean/stands for? I have been searching google and asking friends with no luck. Thanks for any help!

    haha, I am just not sure if it was funny or a mean remark or what. It was after a "I have been doing this for 7 years and there is no way you can purchase that for even twice the price you are asking..." phone call after I got that price from their web site originaly. Oh well, for risk of ruining my fair chance on an unbiased response, it was Dell. He changed a system configuration on me to make it 5k more and I called him out on it.

    So what does it mean anywone....?

    OK, during a phone call he asked me about how much one of the desktops I picked out cost online. I told him about $4,800 and He said no way that was too low. He said I was looking at upper 9k. He then sent me this email with a quote attached for th emachine where he says he followed my copy of their cart from before exactly but he did not, making the price 5k more (bye selecting 2x2GB ram sticks instead of 1x4GB sticks which I had spelled out for him in the initial document I sent him)

    Full Email:

    Josform the Woh

    this is the Precision for Morris and doing a direct copy Word document and without a discount at this point this is the WEB Pricing I come up with

    If you would be so kind as to copy me on the CART I will pull it in and see exactly where I went wrong

    What I would ask him would have to be what country he is in. Frankly, that sounds like some variant of engrish to me.

    I am in the US. I am ordering a bunch of PCs and servers for a friend of the family who is starting up a business. He wants Dell mostly because of the service repair.

    i think malpine meant where the rep you've been talking to is. ive only encountered dells support rep, "Dave" once, and he seemed like he sat through a few hour americanization class and was on his tech support journey. i will give him that he was very polite and respectful, more than i see from most americans.

    it does look like an engrish variation to me as well, i hope there was nothing negative intended.

    my first impression when i saw the word DELL along with a 4 grand figure, was a server with high end support package (with the dell tech at the door next day kind of service)

    yeah, 2 high end servers and 3 desktops with same day service. The guy sounds very American. I just did a lookup on his name and found some one with the same name with a texas address where Dell has at least on large center. Not sure if it is him or what ever, but I bet you he is American at least!
