  1. Please I need help. I have submitted about four different names that has been rejected. When I search for them in the cac name search, it returns blank and it writes “refine your search value”. I don’t know what this means but I take it the names are free hence my going ahead to pay. What is the meaning and how do I know if the names are free. Thank you.

  2. What devilish country is this where nothing works except fraudulent practices?
    I’ve paid for more than 5 name searches and denied. Yet the public search engine never works. Really, the country Nigeria should never have been in existence!
