    I dont believe that. If they work for private school which one? why not mentioned? and Did they show you their work permit and visa? Just think for every $1 they get from how many thousand of people they fooled? where this money go? surely not to Khmer orphans or to the temple? think.

      Yeah one of them handed me that same pamphlet when i was getting my motorbike fixed once. She complained and said she saw I had money in my wallet. I told her no but she kept demanding and would not give up. Finally she left after minutes of standing and staring at me. No good vermin.
