**LETTER OF RETRACTION**
Defamation of 1st Priority Restoration Services, Inc. 1st Priority Restoration Services, Inc.
Attn: Yitshak Levy, President
3389 Sherin Street Suite 127
Hollywood, Florida 33021
Dear Mr. Levy:
On , 2009 during a United Civic Organization (" UCO" ) Insurance meeting, I took it upon myself to publish to its President, George Loewenstein and other committee members, then in attendance, a purported memorandum regarding the validity and experience of Ist Priority Restoration Services, Inc.
My memorandum commenced with five(5)" key" questions, to wit:
How and why is UCO First Named Insured?
Why is UCO interfering in Association Insurance Affairs?
Why are so many claims involving potentially unnecessary repairs being filed? What is our risk of being unable to acquire insurance as a result of our escalating claims~ volume?
Why did we select a 5 year old inexperienced firm for such a major project?
My memorandum first states that " 1st Priority Restoration" does not appear to be licensed in Florida. I then go on to state that " 1st Priority Restoration Services, Inc. " appears to be the true name of the firm. I hereby acknowledge that at all times relevant herein, 1st Priority Restoration Services, Inc., was a duly incorporated Florida corporation and I apologize for inferring that the company was not licensed in Florida for not having filed their articles of incorporation with the Florida Secretary of State, Division of Corporations.
My memorandum then states that 1st Priority Restoration Services, Inc.'s web site refers to MC Enterprises of South Florida, Inc. (" MC" ) which is " reminiscent of those who do handyman jobs in CV and advertise in the Reporter under other people's name and license." I further stated that MC is licensed but made no mention of First Priority. What I should have stated is that the corporate address, the President and Vice President of both corporations are identical. Thus, this is NOT reminiscent of persons who perform other " handyman jobs" . I hereby apologize for defaming the activities of 1st Priority Restoration Services, Inc.

My memorandum further states that " I would suspect the Legal ability of either firm to carry out Mold mitigation." I acknowledge that I have no competent substantial evidence of the truthfulness of this statement and apologize for defaming the services rendered by 1st Priority Restoration Services, Inc. mld/or MC Enterprises of South Florida, Inc.
My memorandum further states that " The Corporation filing clearly indicates that 1st. Priority Restoration Services, Inc., was created on September 9. 2004 (within a week after Hurricane Frances had devastated Florida ) specifically, I suspect, to rape Florida Citizens of all those juicy Insurance dollars and Deductible payments." I acknowledge that I have no competent substantial evidence of the truthfulness' of this statement and apologize for defaming the good name of 1st Priority Restoration Services, Inc.
In addition, I acknowledge orally stating at a recent UCO meeting that 1st Priority Restoration Services, Inc. operated under the following entities: (a) First Priority DKI; and (b) First Priority Restoration, Inc. 1 acknowledge that at no time did 1st Priority Restoration Services, Inc. ever operate under the foregoing names and that I have no competent substantial evidence of the truthfulness of my statement. I hereby apologize for defaming the good name of 1st Priority Restoration Services, Inc. and misleading the public as to its work and reputation.
It appears that my memorandum, while only distributed at the UCO meeting, was in fact disseminated to other members within Century Village, Boca Raton. Accordingly, 1 hereby request that those who made copies of my previous Memorandum to make equal or greater numbers of copies of this retraction letter and that they distribute it as they did my Memorandum.
Finally, please consider this correspondence as my formal retraction of all defamatory references to IST Priority Restoration Services, Inc I realize that I was remiss in not checking more carefully to ensure the accuracy of my information, for which I sincerely apologize. I hereby formally state that I have no reservations whatsoever of UCO or any other entity within Century Village or elsewhere from soliciting and utilizing the services of IST Priority Restoration Services, Inc
Very truly yours,
DAVE B. ISRAEL
