THERE IS NOTHING TOO HARD FOR YOU TO DO
I have always dreamt of winning BIG in the lottery. I surfed the internet for help to win the lottery massively and I was directed to the DR Amber website. I had a chat with him about what I needed and he assured me that his spell will make me become a lottery winner. He got back to me after 3 days with the numbers that I needed to play the lottery and told me to believe in myself. I felt enveloped by the control of the spell. I took his words and played the Mega Millions Lottery. Two days later, I was sent an email that I've won the sum of 107 Million Dollars. I was shocked and couldn't believe what my eyes were seeing. Immediately I was given the cash prize, I stopped working. I want to say a very big thank you to DR Amber for helping people like us who really need help. Now I know that there's absolutely nothing too hard for DR Amber to do. To get in touch with him, email : email@example.com or click his webpage URL___ amberlottotemple.com

Cleverest scam ever, just take publicly-available films used by researchers and filmmakers and suddenly you own them. Stick your ugly, evil bullshit along the bottom third and basically make us pay for something that in essence hasn't being created by your operation. If I win the lottery, I will take you to court just for the hell of it, Periscope. This is one of the shoddiest ways I have ever seen to make money, and to think you are taking it out of the pockets of entry level content creators is a lowlife, backstabbing move.
