I saw the article above from your website. I did not know who to contact for this. I am writing this complain on the first empty space I saw.
I was alarmed because this lady is not using her name. She is using the name of a person I know who is from Chicago.
Please contact her. This is gross misrepresentation. She carries a profession that that must be trusted. I can be reached at 417-782-2917. Thank you very much.
