    So much good stuff to quote here! "The company may not discover or adequately evaluate adverse facts about a potential opportunity or business acquisition given Mr. Petrossian’s lack of experience in the mergers and acquisitions field. Mr. Petrossian will run Google back ground checks on the potential officers and directors and examine the audited financials provided."

    Mr. Petrossian has no specific experience, qualification, attributes or skills to perform as a director of a blank check company nor in the acquisition of acquisition candidates.

    "On or about November 4, 2011, Nishon Petrossian, our officer and director, paid $13,025 for the incorporation of the Company with personal funds on behalf of the Company. Subsequently, she received reimbursement from the company through issuance of 8,000,000 shares of common stock at $0.001628 per share"

    This just reads like a sound investment.

    Perhaps your grammatical aptitude had something to do with the termination of your employment. Perhaps you had no business entering this business at all.
