    I dont reckon embassies would do work ex. becuase you'd need a sercurity clearance by who? MI5? and that would take time if its anything to go by ASIO.

    A few people in my school went to embassies of a Spanish speaking country... I've got a feeling that they had the details on a database at school, so someone a few years ago had the connections...
