Dear Steven,

Please review your list of questions. Whether or not a
Sterling entity incorporated Worldwide Picks LTD.
was never asked, so that was not researched. Your
questions dealt with Tom Heysek. I will restate that
we have never done any business with this person,
including incorporating a company for him by this, or
any other name.

I do not remember incorporating such a company, but do
not plan to put my staff through any more at this point, as
it is meaningless. It is no more important than whomever
incorporated Propel Software for you. If you do something
illegal or immoral in the name of your company, it is not
the fault of the incorporator, nor is he liable.

Had we done so, I would not be able to disclose under the
privacy laws, so it is a moot point, but can tell you that Tom
Heysek was not amongst them. We rarely know to whom
shares are issued once the corporate books and seals are
delivered anyway, as with most incorporators. We're simply
functionaries. If he later became a shareholder of a company
we incorporated, I would have no way of knowing. I hope this is

My vacation is over, and I return to Anguilla tomorrow. Best
of luck in your endeavors.

Howell W. Woltz, TEP

I am in receipt of your response.

The information you have is critical to my case, and it has also been
explicitly requested from my by at least one government official who is
also investigating this matter.

I will get back to you on how we will proceed.

Thank you for your help in this matter.

Also, the name of the company is Worldwide Picks, LTD if that makes a

I must confess that I do find it rather odd that in your email below you
did not admit to incorporating that company. Is there some reason you
neglected to mention this?

Dear Steven,

Sorry for the delay. Our server is up and running again.

Sterling does not control, own shares in, or run a company
named Worldwide Stock Picks, Ltd., and I have never met
Tom Heysek in my life, nor has our company ever done
business with him, or set up a company for him to my
knowledge, and from a thorough check of our database.

This issue has prompted me to speak with him over the
last three days on two occasions in an effort to get our
information off of these sites. He claimed to have no
knowledge of how it got there, but was helpful in instructing
us on how to track down domain registrants.

His name showed up on a list of potential actuaries (there are only
1500 in America) in our insurance company's information file,
but we have never used him. His name also showed up in an
e-mail in the last few days from a third party wishing to open
"anonymous" accounts, claiming to have seen our information
on a website with Tom Heysek. We do not answer unsolicited mail,
and we do not open such accounts, so we did not respond, but his
name did show up in a search of inbound and outbound e-mails,
(as well as in your correspondence).

Those are the only references to Tom Heysek in our system.

Under the quite strict privacy laws, I am not allowed to disclose
information about clients. The laws provide for a $500,000 fine,
and imprisonment up to 10 years, per occurrence of such
disclosure, and a suspension of licence.

Were Tom Heysek a client, I assure you I would not risk such
as that, and would simply tell you that we are unable to answer
your questions, which is our normal protocol, in order to protect
our clients' rights under our laws.

Though I wish you well in your endeavor, I have spent all of my
time, my staff's time, and Mr. Russo's time that I can afford on this

Best regards,

Howell W. Woltz, TEP

Also, please let me know whether:

1) you have known of Tom Heysek prior to my call and if so, under what
2) whether you have spoken with Tom Heysek aka Thomas M Heysek in the
last 90 days.

That would also be very relevant and helpful to my case.

Thank you.
