  1. KBR Fined $85m for Exposing Iraq Soldiers to Chemical Posted on 06 November 2012. Tags: Halliburton, KBR by John Lee. A federal magistrate in Oregon has ordered Kellogg Brown and Root (KBR) to pay $85 million to a dozen National Guard soldiers for illnesses suffered while guarding an oilfield water plant during the Iraq war. The soldiers said they suffer from respiratory ailments after exposure to sodium dichromate, and they fear that the hexavalent chromium that it contains could cause cancer. The chemical was added to water that was pumped underground to push oil to the surface at the site managed by KBR. The soldiers claimed the substance was loose in the compound and contaminated areas outside the building where it was added to the water. One soldier testified the chemical even coated his food. Another 21 soldiers included as plaintiffs in the original filing are waiting their turn in court as the case was initially too large to handle at one time. Each of the 12 soldiers was awarded $850,000 in non-economic damages and $6.25 million in punitive damages. KBR says it will appeal the verdict. During the Iraq war, KBR was the engineering and construction arm of Halliburton, the biggest U.S. contractor during the conflict. KBR split from Halliburton in April 2007.

  2. The video has been removed off the freedocumentaries.com website, "GEE I WONDER WHY" BUT I FOUND IT HERE.. NAME Beyond Treason
  3. Yep, and now I won't lose $300.00. SMEE2 everyone is entitled to their opinions, and you're right, I should have dug deeper in their website but at the time, I was hurrying to find a dealer to deliver. I had always done my business through Dinar Banker but they sent their banking to Poland and I get free domestic wires but not international so they were out of the question this time. There was plenty of time to get the Dinar from Florida to Michigan where I was... hind sight is 20/20 they always say... anyways, they fixed the problem now so everything is kosher! Oh and SMEE2 had changed my mind only after Skyping with my wife and I was trying to please her and keep the money to take back to Hong Kong where I live and work. If she didn't sound like she would have been happier without it, I would have just proceeded to pick up the dinar... I had sold my jeep Wrangler while back in the states and decided to use part of the cash for the Dinar...
  4. Well friend, my attitude culminated from obeying John's request and having my credit union wire him the proof of purchase, they somehow dropped the ball after saying they would expedite my order. I am sure they had every intention and certainly the time if someone at their company maybe didn't lose the two wire proofs that were sent to them. It was only after I found out things went haywire and time was no longer on anyone's side that I started to get frazzled. I am a very patient person when it comes to people's short-comings. $2,360.00 US dollars in this economic climate is nothing to sneeze at and my money doesn't come easy ... so thanks for your candid input..
  5. Hey, BrokeNoMore, looks like Tampa Dinar has a heart and you don't! We will be sending you order #38356, you stated to send it to Honk Kong correct. Thank you for your time and consideration. Christian Vazquez Director Of Operations On Mon, Feb 6, 2012 at 3:16 PM, Mark Aldrich <wirednw@hotmail.com> wrote: Dear John: I want to know why no one ever mentioned about your refund/cancellation policy to me. I am a past business man and I have never taken revenge on someone just because I didn't like what they wrote or said to me and shied away from making sure my customers came away happy and with the least amount of costs for their work. This is the same, you runb a company, and good business ethics should dictate that you don't intentionally try to screw your customers just because there is a misunderstanding and a lack of knowledge ion my part of your policies. As I said before, your policy is very hard to find and there should have been a visible link on the front page or on an order page so us customers getting ready to spend thousands of dollars can see what were into. Your return/refund policies were listed in a place that is normally reserved for website usage and privacy policies. I am asking you this one time to either refund my entire purchase amount or just make good on my order and send me the original order #38356. Sincerely; Mark Aldrich
  6. Whatever, they have no visible link to their refund/cancellation policy and that is deceptive! If I would have been aware of it, things wouldn't have gone the way they did. How many websites you order from do you scour to figure out where everything is? While you make some valid points, business courtesy and having a conscience ranks number one and when John and I talked, there wasn't friction in the way he couldn't have alerted me to the refund policy. I can tell by your attitude though that you would screw me too because you have no understanding of ethical business practices. I am a business man from the past and I have never taken revenge or acted in a way contrary to my customers best interests. You don't keep a good reputation very long doing that!
  7. Well it looks like I'm screwed, Tampa Dinars cancellation or return policy was buried amoungst the website policies and they charge a 15% restocking fee, so I just lost $300.00 USD because John from Tampa Dinar didn't want to mention it to me when we talked or his receptionist who answer their phones Nikki and Shawna. That's what I call deceptive business practices... any honest business person would warn his customers they where going to lose money if they make a certain decision
  8. Well you know violinist, you make a good point, I never saw anything related to their return policies noticable on their website and unfortunately, John there evidently didn't want to mention it either because he wouldn't make his $300.00 off my misfortune. They are a bunch of crooks because they don't nmention anything to you in case you might actually have a chance to change your mind and say, "oh, my god, I didn't realize their was such a restocking fee," and just get your order. so I guess i might be F'd in that way. none of the employee's or John as I said, told me about their restocking fee's and it is nowhere easy to find, you have to actually dig for oit on their website! I think I would just like to kill myself now as I can't imagine loosing $300.00 just because of this!
  9. How many people have had problems with Tampa Dinar? I was on an 11 day sabbatical in the USA from Hong Kong and I ordered 2 million from TD. After placing the order I called them and asked if they could get my shipment delivered by Monday the day before I left. It was really plenty of time. When I called, I spoke first to Shawna and she told me to submit a ticket to alert them to my need. So here is their response. Wednesday, January 25, 2012 12:42 Dear Mark Aldrich, A comment has been added to the following support ticket. As always, it is our pleasure to assist in any way possible! Ticket #: 321534 Subject: Mr. Status: Closed Solution: [Jan 25 2012 12:43PM] : Greetings, Send a copy of your wire to my fax @ 302-449-7358 so I may help expedite your Order# 38356 Thank you, John Customer Service Manager MY REPLY...Hi John: I talked to my credit union and they will be sending you a wire confirmation number with a note on their letter head within about 20 minutes! Thank you so much..this means a lot to me and I will advertise your good customer service on my website and in my skype room Copacabana which is a Dinar room! Sincerely; Mark Aldrich So, I immediately contacted my credit union and put in the request. Within an hour, John had his proof of my wire fax. late that afternoon I got a call from my CU and they said their proof of a wire to TD wasn't accepted and that TD had called asking for specific info. They said they would be glad to give them the actual wire copy but it had my acct. # on it. i told them to release the actual copy and black out my acct.# to which they did. The next day mid-morning I sent another ticket to TD and asked if they had gotten what they needed to process my order [ticket: 323708] Thursday, January 26, 2012 18:03 Dear Mark Aldrich, Thank you for choosing T.P. Trade LLC This is just a quick note to notify you that we have received your support request. A member of our support team will address your request as soon as possible. Your Ticket #: 323708 Question/Issue: Wondered if you got everything you needed to expedite my 2 mil dinar order? Thanks Mark With no reply from them I send another ticket... Your Ticket #: 324303 Question/Issue: Hi, I am leaving for Hong Kong early Tuesday morning and I haven't heard back from you concerning your reply to my credit unions attempt to fax you the needed information to expedite my order. Can you please let me know the status of this? Thank you kindly; Mark Aldrich TO WHICH I GOT THIS REPLY... Ticket #: 323708 Subject: Mr. Status: Working Comment: [Jan 27 2012 9:56AM] : Hi Mark, I checked my Fax and did not see where you sent the fax? Please resend 302-449-7358 Thanks, John THEN I SENT THIS... John somebody from Tampa Dinar contacted my credit union personally, I didn't have anything to do with it, so you need to check to see who it was and get back to me please. THEN I SENT THIS.... Dear John: If you can't overnight this order, please cancel the order and wire my credit union the $2360.00 back to my account. Thank you; Mark Aldrich Customer Service Manager Now mind you, at this point, TD had called and asked specifically for that second wire copy, received it, and should have began processing it. THEN I SENT THIS... Dear John: I can't believe you're telling me this after my credit union sent a copy of the wire to your company and then they called my credit union and said it didn't have enough information on it so my credit union sent a second copy of the original wire with my account number blacked out. If this is how this goes, please just refund my $2,360.00 to my account and cancel this order. I needed it delivered before I left to go back to Hong Kong! Mark THEN THE MORE I THOUGHT ABOUT IT, IT UPSET ME SO I SENT THEM THIS... John: I want my $2,360.00 back. You didn't follow thru on your end. You got the wire confirmation from my credit union twice, do you think their a bunch of damn liars? Whoever talked to them should have believed them that they sent the payment. Please wire my money back to the Michigan State University Federal Credit Union ASAP! Regretfully; Mark Aldrich AFTER NO RESPONSE FROM THEM AFTER I CALLED TWICE AND SPOKE TO NIKI AND SHE SAID JOHN WOULD CALL ME IN ABOUT 45 MINUTES, THEN 2 HOURS LATER I CALLED AND GOT SHAWNA AGAIN AND SHE SAID JOHN WAS OUT TO LUNCH AND SHE WOULD HAVE HIM CALL ME WHEN HE GOT BACK. THEN AT 6:30 That night I got home from shopping and checked my email and got a Fed Ex tracking number saying it had been shipped, but get this, it wouldn't be delivered until the day I was gone! SO I SENT THEM THIS... Call Fed Ex and stop the order, you didn't call me back, I spoke to Niki an Shanna and told them I wanted my money back. I will not be here and there is no one else here to get that order. You were supposed to have it here by Monday at the latest. I will be on a plane before that order even leave Fed Ex! SO THEN I SEND ANOTHER TICKET AND TELL THEM THEY HAVE TWO CHOICES, EITHER WIRE MY MONEY BACK TO MY CU AFTER EMAILING ME FOR THE ACCT.# ETC. OR SHIP MY DINAR TO HONG KONG AND I GAVE THEM THE ADDRESS. THEY FINALLY REPLIED THIS WAY... Ticket #: 325642 > Subject: Mr. > Status: Waiting for response > Comment: > [Jan 29 2012 10:58AM] : Greetings, > > Which do you prefer? If you would like us to wire the funds back into your account provide the information and we will be more than happy to accommodate that request. You may also give me a call @(855) 201-3799 (855) 201-3455 M-F 10am-4pm EST > > Thanks, > > John > Customer Service Manager TO WHICH I REPLIED... You can wire the funds back into my account in #xxxxxx routing #272479663 Then, the package shows up a day early at the Fed ex where i'm at, and by this time i have had it with the incompetence of TD. But, I call Fed Ex to see if they can deliver it and they lady says, NO, because it wasn't scheduled to be delivered until the next day. Then she says I can pick it up after she finds it, and that she will call me to let me know. Within 30 minutes she calls and says it's ready to be picked up. Then, 15 minutes later she calls and says that the shipper has requested it be returned. So I tell het the sad story of the communications I had with TD. She says, oh, we'll have to call the shipper and get permission to release it, but I'll call you back. About 15 minutes later she calls me back and says it's ok to pick to which I reply... Now, I'm having second thoughts. I say to her, well, I am debating now picking it up and if i don't get there by the end of today it won't get picked up because I leave for Hong Kong at 8:00am in the morning. Then, about an hour later I get a call from John at TD and he asks me if I am going to pick up the order and I say I'm still thinking about it now. He then tries to insinuate that I was going to allow him to wire the money back and still pick up the Dinar. To which I remind him of my first email reply saying if he wired my money back he would have to email me to get the account number. I told him i didn't think he was that loose and would wire anything back without having confirmation of the return delivery too. Then I asked him why the problems and he says he didn't get the fax. After I verify what his fax number is, I prove my credit union only faxed to that number because that was the only one they had. He insists he was keeping up on the status of the order and I said no you weren't or you would have received the faxes my CU sent. I hadn't decided not to pick up the order at that point and told him the same thing I told the Fed Ex lady. After we had a fifteen minute conversation John and I hung up in an amiable status, but after I thought about his insinuations and his claims, I decided I didn't want to give him my business. So before I left the next day I sent John a message saying I did not pick up the order and when the Fed Ex figured it out they would be returning the shipment. I got on the plane the next morning and figured when I got back to Hong Kong I would probably at least get a message from him acknowledging my last message etc. NOTHING! So I emailed them and submitted another ticket asking to please wire my money back to my credit union. A day later, I get a Fed Ex tracking number and a message from them saying a cashiers check was being delivered. So I wait the four days, the delivery comes a day early and when I open it, the check is a personal check not a cashiers check, and John, who says he was keeping up on the order, made the check out for the wrong amount. It was $2,036.00 when it was supposed to be $2,360.00. Needless to say, I am pissed! Read more: http://dinarvets.com/forums/index.php?/topic/104059-tampa-dinar-problems/#ixzz1la5v3sgW

  11. IF OCCUPY WALL STREET COULD BRING THIS UP AS ONE OF THEIR FOCUSES IT WOULD REALLY GRAB THE WORLDS ATTENTION!
  12. THIS INFORMATION NEEDS TO BE TOLD TO ANYONE WHO SERVED, IS SERVING OR GOING TO SERVE IN THE US MILITARY. OUR GOVERNMENT IS PREVENTING THIS FROM GETTING OUT AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE. WATCH THIS VIDEO AND IT SHOWS NOT ONLY OUR OFFENSES AGAINST THE IRAQI PEOPLE, BUT AGAINST OUR OWN SOLDIERS. I HATE OUR GOVERNMENT! THEIR PIGS! http://freedocumentaries.org/int.php?filmID=293
  13. I believe it, what's your point? Its just like the movie Eddie Murphy played in called the distinguished Gentlemen, have you seen it?
  14. THIS IS AN OMG>>>>> no way in hell does this even come close! Have you read this report! PEOPLE, YOU HAVE TO READ THIS REPORT, THERE ARE INCIDENCES ONLY A FEW MONTHS OLD AND THIS EASILY TELLS THE STORY OF WHY NO RV IS GOING TO GET DONE ANYTIME SOON! THESE PEOPLE MAKE THE MAFIA LOOK BAD! >>>>>>> THIS SAYS IT ALL! <<<<<<<< Lack of progress by both government and parliament has been so striking (despite clear and relatively straightforward avenues for reform) that it is impossible to avoid the conclusion that senior policy-makers have acted out of vested interest to maintain a thoroughly corrupt system. The clearest illustration of this failure was the govern-ment’s continued refusal to repeal Article 136( of the Criminal Procedure Code, by virtue of which an investigative judge could not prosecute a state official without the relevant minister’s prior permission,42 which meant that ministers could unilaterally grant immunity to their staff.43 Article 136( was passed during the early years of Baath Party rule and was intended to ensure that ministers had control over their own staffing levels. Before 2003, the provision was hardly ever invoked to prevent prosecutions,44 but from 2003 to 2011 ministers used it hundreds of times – it is impossible to say precisely how often – to protect political appointees from prosecution.45 The estimated combined value of the funds allegedly sto-len or wasted, and in relation to which prosecutions were never launched, is in the hundreds of millions of dollars.
