I am happy for this lady I had been able to help her in time so she saved her money, but perhaps this is a lesson for us as well, always check out company you are dealing with and check out contact information, if someone send you an email that you have won over 55000 £ in name of UK National Lottery signed with a free yahoo email address, be on guard.
Perhaps that's why people are only going to become a syndicate player if they have trust in company and trust in us as a representative, we are still a small group, but with trust and honesty we will grow, and once people realize this, we will grow big.
