    So I have been communicating with Audie via email in regards to our flowers and decor for our wedding in a couple weeks. I have signed and sent the form with the quote she had given us. She has been wonderful and prompt with the email correspondance. For payment of sevices she had emailed me different modes of payment.

    One of the options were western union. So today I was going to transfer payment and the clerk I had asked assistance from was extremely hesitant to put the transaction through as she had SEVERAL cases of fraud in Jamaica! She was questioning me about the legitamacy of this business and how did I hear about them..yadda yadda yadda...like this lil old clerk was almost refusing for me to send this money. She told me to check the BBB in Jamaica and do my research and such. After all this I just left a little paranoid!

    I have emailed jan bridal and flowers to see if i can call over the phone and make a payment. And I have also emailed Roxianna at ROR to inquire about it.

    Im a little annoyed at myself cuz this lil old clerk has got me paranoid!

    Any thoughts or advice ladies

      Hi Misstrae,

      Did you check with BBB? or maybe your wedding coordinator knows of the business or has had other dealings with her? I don't know of any brides on here that have used Jan's yet, though I've seen a few who do plan to!

      Let us know how it goes, because I was thinking of using her services myself! Can you please give me her contact info?

        I haven't heard of Jans either. But I too am a bit skeptic about sending money through western union for a business transaction to any country not just Jamaica. Can you use any other method of payment that may be safer for you and your money?

          I am not using Jan's. I understand how you feel. That was a huge deciding factor for using the resort vender. Even with that decision I questioned the WC at the resort before I deposited the payment into the florists US account.

            I've never heard of Jan's, but i am over here because I would be really paranoid too.

              Hey there breeze616,

              This is the website. It use to work but now it's asking for a login? Odd? The email that I have been using is jansflowers@hotmail.com.

              I actually just now heard from Chandlyns assistant and she states that Jan is very popular in Ocho Rios and that they have been doing buisness with their brides for 4 yrs. This makes me feel so much better!

                  The clerk was right that it is always smart to really verify where you are sending money before doing it. Actually, I wish more clerks were as diligent in expressing caution because there is a lot of people out there who fall for scams because they didn't do their research first. Even if it's annoying, I think the clerk did a great job.
                  As for Jan's, I've read a couple of posts where people were happy with their services and I've been in touch with them too. She will be my vendor of choice.

                    Thanks MissTrae, I did find that email address in another post, but she hasn't replied yet. grrrrr Island-time/Wedding season is really wearing on my patience...

                    Ya, and the website makes no sense... you said that you used to be able to see it? I havent yet

                      I wonder if you can use paypal or a US account?
