One of my companies was raided like this in 1996. I will give John Ramsey a
call tomorrow. I lost over $460K to fight the battle.. a won... barely.
First thing anyone should do is release anything and everything on the
internet when something like this happens, and start the press before a
media ban is put on the case (like mine).With my contacts, and lawyers I was
able to pull through. The federal bastards tried anything to bankrupt me..
even by taking any lose change they could find the day during the raid.

I hope John kicks them back. If I wasn't so busy with the load I just got I
would throw up a server in Ireland or somewhere and post some very serious
high tech transmitters I had to design back in '94.

It is possible to take a chunk back out of them... I hope he does it.
