Greetings all,
 I just got this answer to my email to Mr. Rahman.
The part that says,
 "I by no means claim myself an authority in this area, however tried my
best to educate myself and did a limited research in this area to come
up with a very honest analysis report, to the best of my knowledge."
is scary from someone handing out professional analyses.

Dear Mr. Newton,<br>
I read your e-mail with interest and will try to answer your questions
with complete honesty and to the best of my knowledge.<br>
-There is no question that this could be a forgery. I have personally
done the analysis and as far as the portion described on that web site
which is in exact reference to my report is truly genuine. The additional
info about that Meteorite (beyond the verdict of my report, if any) might
be as a result of other peoples research.<br>
-This is the first time I personally have studied and analyze this kind
of a sample and while I by no means claim myself an authority in this
area, however tried my best to educate myself and did a limited research
in this area to come up with a very honest analysis report, to the best
of my knowledge.<br>
- I am not aware of any such thing that would give kind of a
certification to UCF to classify meteorites.<br>
I hope you would have got answers of your questions but I would love to
hear more from you or from other more experienced people from this area
and I would like to leave this session open for further discussion. I
hope I will learn more this way.<br>
Please feel free to e-mail me should you have further inquiries in this
regard or if you think I can help in any other way.<br>

Is this a forgery or is the report genuine?<br>
If genuine, how many meteorites have you verified?<br>
Does UCF classify meteorites?<br>
