Rudy and Sherwin
Since you both are saying you are not Leila nor Leila's dogs defending her and the embassy's credibility, why dont you prove it???

in ANY possible way...

coz that's the only way you can prove to people here that you are NOT FAKE!

company name? company number of your job? your facebook pages? anything close to that where we can confirm that you are real... and IF you ARE, then you can assure nobody will question your identities anymore..


if you cant do that, well, "DO ONE"!! coz im not gonna waste my time on FAKE people who cant even comprehend to what im saying.. I HATE IDIOTS!!!

is there anybody SMART enough here to understand what i keep on saying???? my gosh... why does some people have to be this idiot???

im happy here in South Africa. no worries, no guilt, no anger, no nothing... JUST SAYING the embassy service is bad.. i mean, worsT..!!! and people with negative comments here are RIGHT.

1 word should be enough for wise people.

if that isnt clear enough, i wouldnt want to argue with you Rudy and Sherwin anymore because you dont even have at least COMMON SENSE. you talk NONE SENSE and you both are not smart enough for this kind of talk..

God.... pls. help these idiots.

that's right! "what's goes around, come around"... KARMA! you should tell Leila that so that (maybe somehow) she will undertand why this is happenning to her.. in that way as well, you can help her and more people. there's no need to argue with us.. this is our problem, not yours. why dont you shut up? it just shows how defensive you are, how concern you are, how desperate you are to clean their dirt, which in this case also showcase how FAKE you are in this site.

the more you talk, the more obvious it is that you are not just a normal citizen... or at least the common one... you are more likely to be compaired as one of them.. or "maybe", just maybe, a "knight in shining armour" which in this age is a DOG..

Shelby, Rudy is on the spot just like you other buddy lamented, you need therapy. Your anger is really eating you and you alone. I repeat as well what goes around comes around. You don't respect yourself, and you will get nothing from anyone, not even a tiny bit respect.

you're right! this is soo boring now, so why wont you just shut up? if you dont have any complaints with the embassy and Leila and if you are not too CONCERN about her (them), why so DEFENSIVE then???

if you think we are being unfair to her in this website, well, we think SHE and her buddies are unfair to us in that embassy!! look, i will tell you what your best buddy Sherwin told me:
if she gave it to me and to other people here who had and is having the same experience i had, i dont think the embassy will have these complainants, i dont think she'll get this from lots of people and i dont think you will need to defend her.

but i pity her.... i pity people who knew lots of people hate them but still have the face to do more people wrong... why? because they ARE pitiful. imagine LIFE with too many haters from around the world? from black, to white, to brown, to yellow!! from almost all the continents!! it's a SHAME. pity...

i'm just so glad to know that even though im not checking this website regularly, there are still people aside from me who notice this ridiculousness.. can you imagine how CRAZY, DESPERATE, and LUNATIC this person is for talking to HERSELF/himself here just to defend the embassy and "MS LEILA CUSTODIO"???!!!! bit funny now to me...

and YOU...yes, you, idiot, i was granted with the visa after 3months of sacrifice and patience, but it DOESN'T mean i cant complain about their service! it NEVER meant that "just because i got my visa now" i shouldn't complain anymore because this isnt just about their job and my pupose, it is also about RESPECT and PROFESSIONALISM..

i wouldnt get my visa if i didnt respect them.... but look! i still complain.. because im not just an applicant, im also a human being, with human rights, who will NATURALLY demand for humanly respect back which i have given them.. simple as that!

Sherwin, amazing how you suddenly came back up we with "your new buddy Rudy" to have a "team" for the side of the embassy!!! im quite... surprised... thrilled but at the same time, sick of you now so please (Sherwin/Rudy), DON'T PLAY DUMB. you're TOO obvious with your simple "if im Leila" this, "im not Leila" that...

not angry with these clowns anymore though... they are too pathetic now.. too funny to take seriously! just sooo.... useless.

i think people are being unfair to Leila for being firm and refusing to give in to people who want to bend rules to suit them. I have dealt with Leila and she has done nothing degrading or idiotic like you people claim.
It is obvious that if you were unsuccessful in getting your visa this forum will be your outlet to voice your anger. It is acceptable, but disrespecting her on the net proves to how immature you are. Maybe find yourself constructive ways to keep busy instead of posting messages that directionless. Level headed people will not do this, so grow up guys, this is boring now.

SPOT-ON analysis
Don't believe a single positive comment you read about this embassy; they are all posted by Leila Custodio herself using fake names! And the sick thing about it is that she cannot see that that is dishonest! One would think that an embassy official would have more integrity. Not with that disrespectful little clown though! The comments by Peter Pilchard and Catherine Stone are spot-on.

I agree, it's a PATHETIC embassy
To the idiotic Custodio : maybe you should look at the remarks posted about other embassies on this site and ask yourself WHY there are so many negative comments about you. Are you too stupid to realize that it's because you a rude power-hungry little idiot with no peoples' skills whatsoever. How much respect do you need to be shown before you do your job? Do you really think that sooo many people would complain like this for no reason. Catch a wake up and get another job, YOU are the problem.
