Regardless of this issue we still wish to help prevent internet fraud and save people from internet loss. I have been interviewed and featured in various publications such as the Wall Street Journal, New York Times & Daily News, The London Times & AARP Newsletters.

With our good position, this contract was over invoiced and as a deal to be benefited by me and my colleague.
