ACCREDITED INVESTOR STATEMENT
NOTE: Rule 506 of Regulation D and Rule 506 promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission under the Securities Act of 1933 (the “Act”) exempts from registration requirements of the Act certain private placements. Regulation D requires the issuer of the security to make a subjective determination that each Purchaser meets certain suitability standards. However, certain
Purchasers meeting the qualifications set forth herein, defined as “Accredited Investors” are presumed to meet the suitability qualifications regarding their ability to evaluate the merits and risks of the proposed investment, thereby eliminating the need for the Issuer to make a subjective determination about this suitability of such Purchaser. This questionnaire is intended to provide the Issuer with information to satisfy the Issuer that the party signing this questionnaire is in fact an Accredited Investor, thereby eliminating the need for the Issuer to make a subjective determination regarding the suitability of such Purchaser.

decision is made by a plan fiduciary, as defined in Section 3(21) of such Act,
which is either a bank, insurance company, or registered investment adviser, or
the employee benefit plan has total assets in excess of $5,000,000.00.

7. ________ That I qualify as an organization described in Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code with total assets in excess of $5,000,000.00.
8. ________ That I am a trust, with total assets in excess of $5,000,000.00 not formed for the specific purpose of acquiring the securities offered, whose purchase is directed
by a sophisticated person as described in Rule 506(b)(2)(ii).

I think it is funny that RSEI pretended to be inviting institutional investors which would be voting share holders - just the sort of grey men that ramstrers fear would be stake holders of RSEI. Cognitive dissonance anybody?
I like the little psychological twist at the end of the letter where Judy pretends not to want to strart a retirement rumor, which is, of course, intended to start a rumor.
Threre is also fabulously bad timing of the RSEI offering, which corresponded to the exact time the US and world economies were tanking. One would think Ramtha would have been around to give some beter advise about picking a better toime to get a an International school with, "Ramtha," in the name off to a good start.
