RE: Earl Conroy is an alias

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Dear Mr. Bates:
You me an apology and also an indemnization.
Due to Mr. Conroy´s reccomendations I moved from STAAD-III to Risa 3D.
Since I´m not satisfied with Risa 3D, and knowing that you are Mr. Bates
from Risa 3D, I want a refund of my money.
But don´t worry, I´am also ficticious, since I am a STAAD-III Distributor
for Venezuela, and I would never made such a change.
Your ficticious character could have made somebody else take a decision like
the above mentioned.
