    Someone Did Something

    I won't say who or what they did (nothing dirty of course), but they helped me when I was in need. I was in shock! Usually I get scammed. What an angel he is.

    Helping others is truly a fine quality to allow. Ensure that everyone is well respected as no one can manage and do everything on their own.
