So what do you think? I really want to presue this..
thanks for your reply. they never even asked for proof to see that she was on the account. they keep saying that it is because my name is XXXXX XXXXX credit card.
Point 18.104.22.168 is what they referr too, but to me the name is XXXXX XXXXX is there only becase the card companys can not put twoi names on the card, what is important is that she is the owner of the moinies.
Also prior to using the card she used her bank card that is in her name, but her card failed to work after three uses therefore,I gave her my card because her card for the same account had not arrived in the mail at that time.
I that they can do this,we can prove that she is the lawfull owner of the money, that should be all that matters.
I want to presue this, to be scamed out off 30,000 is crazy, also they enven refund my deposit 1000 dollars? this steeling

I don't care about the money, it is the principal.. complains need to be help accountable! this is unfair and unjust!! I am trying to get a lawyer in Malta, I assume I can't use a Canadian lawyer? I like a reference to a lawyer I can trust...
