    Dear Investor;

    My name is Marcio and I have invented a product that can be an infinite source of electric energy. It can be installed in peoples homes shops or even local suppliers.
    In the world that we live today, I understand that this is very difficult to believe but the investor wouldn’t lose anything if at list listen to what I have to say at a brief meeting. I really believe this product will change the world. This started with a study for ” Space travel technology solutions ” towards ” Interstellar travel capabilities” but I believe this product has the potential to solve the World’s Energy Crisis.
    With this message, I hope to one day welcome the investor on board.

    Kind regards
    Marcio Teotonio

    Please for heavens sake know Raj Dhonota. He has no money and his last scam was a property, IT and translation portal where he left his employees, freelancers and translators unpaid! Raj is an unscrupulous man who lies through his teeth to avoid settling his dues. In India we have literally no recourse to such scammers but in Europe, I know there have been complaints made against him to the authorities. When they bailiffs went knocking at his door, they were told that he lives in India, not in the UK! You have been warned!
