“The Space Between Revenge and Forgiveness”

Vers. 17.

According to the New York Post, God Gazarov says in a lawsuit that has refused to correct its system to recognize his name as legitimate.

He says an Equifax customer service representative even suggested that he change his name to resolve the issue.  Gazarov is a Russian native who is named after his grandfather.

Learning Your Alpha-Bet With A Kiss Of Death
