    Dear Sirs:
    I am Alan Gordon of Jerusalem Israel. I want to inform you that I myself, got caught up in the ObamaFoudation/United Nations scam. I had a contact thru African Region of World Bank where I sent money by Western Union. I am out of it now thru assistance of Bank of Israel and we both(bank rep.) and I filed a report here in this country and on Internet Complaint Center. Thru this site, is there any group of victims like myself be willing to join forces in some int’l lawsuit file? I would participate in any recovery action thru your medium and other legal sources. Please reply. AG
