Re: Immigrant investor program is terminated

Geezer, I met the guy, all's I know is the balance of probabilities is the guy owns some property and has developed it. But hey, as I said you don't need me to convince you, but deep down you know I'm not out to lunch on this. Would you ask him coming back please? Tell him Don't give up on us. :lol:
