Just opened my mail box to find a small check for this law suit. Now a days every little bit helps. But the amount paid out should have been more than just in the the small teens. I can only imagine how much the lawyers have gotten paid for this law suit. They should really take into account that they are rich. And if we where on these fake web sites looking for help " we need money ".

I'm praying so hard for me to get compensated by the:
"Federal Trade Commission" vs. the
"On Point Global". It's so sad how fake greedy companies, take advantage of anybody & steal their identity & use it for no good.
