  ACN 002 129 400       Fraud Control Services Pty Limited was registered 
before 1991 - without a proper search I can't give you the exact date.

Your company ACN 065 556 229        Fraud Control Pty Limited was 
registered in 1994. I think your argument re domain names is valid but the 
facts (as stated) are incorrect. In practice - you were the interloper

But I do agree with "I will be happy
for you to devote as much energy complaining to ASIC as you do complaining
about "logistics"."

PS For everyone but Patrick (who already knows) we are both directors of 
auDA but this is a personal tease - and it sometimes works the other way!
