To Whom It May Concern,

I am a technology/business-news reporter for The State, the largest daily newspaper
in South Carolina. I am doing a news article on identity theft, and on online-auction fraud, and I would like to get in touch with some
Internet users in South Carolina who have been victims of either crime.

Please help me get in touch with anyone you know who has personally had to deal with either crime.

You can contact me at

Thank you for your time and attention.


James McWilliams
