Good afternoon. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you.
What does Mr Manches want you to do? Does he want money from you?
Are you online with me?
The fact that he has 500 plus connections is promising. There is no harm in hearing what he says. If you are in the industry then you should be able to have a feel whether or not he is legitimate. I would also insist on speaking with industry references before any involvement.
Did you have further questions.
