From The Desk of Fernando Guzmán Cavero - June 4, 2014: Information To Our Readers

Dear Friends

Today late in the afternoon, my email  tried  to be hacked by a person and or persons interested in hurting myself stealing my commissions, information and who knows what insane purpose they would have had in mind.

Therefore, my system and  its computers are going to pass  through a complete maintenance. We will be very busy talking with our Internet and website servers to try to get where this comes from and ask them  about our believe the attack could have come from and go behind them.

 It will  not be an easy journey, so that, we  think it will take us the rest of the week.

We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause you.  We  try to be back with you as soon as possible.

     Please stay Tuned
Fernando Guzmán Cavero
