Well, if you look at #13, it seems they are
requesting your registration#. Please, correct me if I'm wrong.
It seems odd to me that the CG would waste precious time on this issue in a Mayday, if it didn't provide pertinent information. Which brings us back to the question in #5 you didn't answer. Do you know for a fact that CG doesn't have access to the registration data base (in your state anyway)? If so, how?
Don't mean to pick on you (or be "snarky"). However, IMO, you came across as rather authoritative in you post. If you know something I don't, I want to learn it (the purpose of the thread). If you are saying things that are not based in fact, I want to correct them.
