This is a short project and I need it soon.
C# ASP.NET Web Services SQL Server 2008 R2 IIS

1) a secure module that will acept a user id, a password and a dollar amount. The module will authenticate the user, and confirm that the user has enough of a gift balance to cover the purchase. System should either report success or failure with reason why.
