I looked at the requirements for customers to get the Vonage IPO, and
it requires a minimum of 100 shares to purchase through a few specifed
brokers, by personal check or wire transfer only. Since I cannot get
a bank account right now, I'll have to pass it up.

Details on the offer can be found at

[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: Thank you for looking into this for us.
I got the very same offer in my email Monday afternoon, but had not
yet investigated it. I wish there had been a less expensive offer; I
might have purchsed one or two shares as a novelty. PAT]
