Problem with WebRequest

Hello guys,

Im using the following code, which seems to work fine:

URL = "https://api2.xxxxxxxxxxx.com/user?k=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx"
Dim Request2 As HttpWebRequest = WebRequest.Create(URL)
body = "{""external_guid"": """ & Session("userid") & """, ""client_guid"": ""ATR-3dfg43dj56cb7b"", ""email"":""" & Email & """}"
Request2.Method = "POST"
Request2.ContentType = "application/json"
Dim writer As New StreamWriter(Request2.GetRequestStream(), System.Text.Encoding.ASCII)

The problem is that I have to see the response from the API.

I tried this:

Dim Response2 As HttpWebResponse = Request2.GetResponse

but it returns server 500 error

Any suggestions?
