I had listened to Loral on KSTE and she seemed sincere. I got the
book & generally liked that. Being sem-retired I have been looking
for something to do with myself. And then I talked with one of her
associates, supposedly her right hand man. He wanted to hit my credit
card with $7250 before we even got started. As one might imagine, the
red flag went up immediately. I said I wanted a few days to think it
over & he got rather testy & said that maybe I was not the right person for Loral's program. I agreed with him, wished him a happy new year & hung up.
I also immediately deactivated my credit card . . . my mother was on the
web & found stories of people having charges applied to their credit cards
by Loral Langemeier Inc. without their knowledge or consent. I knew that
LL Inc. had my card number from when I ordered the book & decided to be pro-
active rather than reactive . . . I just don't need the grief. Yes, there
is some inconvenience but it's much better than the alternative.
IMO this is a sad story of somebody running their reputation into the
ditch. It is sad because with a lot of people LL will never get a second
chance. She seems not to realize that the internet is a party line . . .
everybody gets to listen in . . . & when your reputation is gone it's
gone. It's not something like a credit rating that can be rebuilt . . .
when a reputation is gone it's gone for good.
Too bad, so sad.
Everybody have a nice day!

| PLEASE READ THIS LEGAL NOTICE CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU FILE A LAWSUIT OR EVEN WASTE TIME THINKING ABOUT IT. It has been done before, but never successfully. In fact, the last dodobird who tried it ended up being ordered to pay more than $77,000 in attorney fees ($65,000+ to my attorneys and $12,000+ to my co-defendant's legal advisor).
If your attorney is worth his salt, he's going to tell you that the expense of filing a lawsuit you can't win is a whole lot worse than any "damages" resulting from messages posted on this insignificant little chunk of cyberspace.
NEWS FLASH: I didn't just climb down off that ol' turnip truck yesterday. I'm well aware that expressing a negative opinion, relating one's personal experience, and restating provable facts are all legal in this country and do not constitute libel, slander, or defamation -- so you don't want to play games with me, and you sure don't want to start something you aren't prepared to finish. I don't take threats lightly, and I don't accept bribes (or did you call it a "mutually-beneficial arrangement"?). I'll turn you in faster than you can yell, "ARREST ME, I'M SCUM!!"
Do yourself a favor and turn your legal team loose in greener pastures.

In closing, I would like to remind you once again that it is still legal, in this great country of ours, to express a PERSONAL OPINION, as long as it is presented as opinion and not as fact.
And finally, all you scammers out there will do well to remember that TRUTH IS AN ABSOLUTE DEFENSE against charges of libel, defamation, and slander... so if you're operating just a hop, skip, and jump ahead of the law, you might want to think twice before doing anything stupid... (AND SHAME ON YOU!!).
