                                       FOREIGN CONTRACTORS
                                      (W-8BEN CERTIFICATION)

     The U.S. government generally subjects foreign people to United States tax at a
     rate of 30 percent on income they receive from domestic sources. If you are not a
     U.S. citizen and wish to receive your full payment, you must make the following
     certification:


             I declare, under penalty of perjury, that I am exempt from U.S. tax
             withholding because:

             I am not a U.S. citizen; and

             I performed, or will perform, all services outside of the United
             States for which I receive payment through oDesk.

             I further certify that I have read, and I meet, the tax exemptions
             conditions in the Certificate of Foreign Status of Beneficial Owner
             for United States Tax Withholding.

      [U.S. Tax Form W-8BEN and Instructions]

      See IRS Notice 2001-4
