Three Stars Media

Meanwhile Internet Solutions Corp (in spite of its last-minute reinstatements a defunct company) has changed its name twice, first to Career Network Inc., then to Three Stars Media Inc! New names, same scam. It's about time Difrawi and Bell get slapped real hard by the higher courts in both this one and in the case against Tabatha Marshall.
