  1. A good future awaits mr oxley soon . Mr Oxley will face legal consequences. He in fact provided fake documents to usa court as well. I am sure its a crime in usa. That time i was not having good usa lawyer to represent myself. This time i will have. If anyone thinks he is honest then they are sleeping and not recognizing truth. War has not ended and will continue. Godaddy and Paul nicks + aman bhutani uhhh huuhh.
    Every other broker is so hardworking and helpful people. All deserve that. They have always helped.
    I also wanted to see names of Ms Buckley , Mr Rob of snagged.com , Mr Brannans , Mr Louis.
