BE WARNED: - FRAUDSTERS SELLING BOGUS IMPERIAL HONORS THROUGH INTERNET: The Organization known as The Imperial Order of the Dragon of Annam Foundation [Ordre Imperial du Dragon de l'Annam; the I.O.D.A] - Registered as a Legal Corporate Entity in the United States of America [Texas 800563776] - is a BUSINESS ENTERPRISE that is selling bogus and invalid Appointments to Ranks within the Imperial Order of the Dragon of Annam.
