Well done on the honesty of mr pronpong and its good to hear honesty is alive and breathing and also a solid reward for his honesty. It was a large amount of money and tempting to anyone. We certainly see a lot of people on this forum bagging all the negative things and hopefully they will be as enthusiastic in commending the good actions of my pronpong.
