EXHIBIT 17i:

Resignation Letter from Kevin L. Jones

					October 18, 1999

To the Board of Directors
YP.Net, Inc.

Gentlemen:

	It is with regret that I must inform you of
my decision to resign as the Chairman of the Board
and as a Board member from YP.Net, Inc.  This action
is not taken lightly and arose due to a series of events.

	A certain faction arose inside YP.Net, Inc.
that was seriously undermining the direction of the
Corporation and took actions or influenced individuals
to act in certain non-beneficial manners.  This has
slowly been building since the acquisition of Telco
Billing, Inc.

	I have tried to inform management and other
Board members of misrepresentations and ambiguities
as to the financial status of Telco Billing, Inc. and
its client base as represented to this Corporation.
This information concerning potential misrepresentation
and ambiguities has just recently come to my attention
through analysis work performed on the historical data
of Telco Billing, Inc.

	In my recent letter to the Board, I requested that
this be investigated further to determine the extent and
nature and possible remedies available to the Corporation.
Through certain individuals I was made aware that this
would be placed in the record, but no action was going to
be taken at this time.

	This is not acceptable to me.  This therefore leaves
me no alternative, but to resign immediately.


					Sincerely Yours,

					____/s/ Kevin L. Jones______

From: Board of Directors of RIGL Corporation RIGL Corporation

 This letter sets forth the response of the Board of
Directors' of YP.Net, Inc. (the "Company") to the

notifying the Board of Directors of his resignation as a
Director of the Company.

 On October 18, 1999 at 10:00 a.m., the Board
reconvened to continue a Board Meeting originally began on
October 11, 1999, to consider a letter presented to
the Board on October 18, 1999 by Kevin Jones alleging
certain misrepresentations regarding the financial condition
of Telco Billing, Inc. ("Telco") for the period ending May 31, 1999.
Contrary to Mr. Jones' resignation letter, the Board deemed
it in the best interest of the Company that it obtain an

before taking any further action.
