personal friend) - keeping close tabs on progress - Please keep all docs available - they
will need - need your audits Don asap - could you forward here to Vince or Robert our Acct?
I want to thank you Brian! Robert told me of your generosity -
Det's also stated they feel confident we can retrieve data off SONY and would like for you
Don to contact them to walk you through how.
Learned much from them - FYI - if ever you are faced with anything like happened to us - THEY
WILL COME IN IMMED. AND DO COMPUTER AUOITS AT NO COST!
THEY WILL ALSO KEEP ALL DOCS AS EVIDENCE FROM THOSE AUDITS.So it's better to do nothing -
call police first! II
Kind of like a 9-1-1 for computer tampering.

Dear Honora >tine:
It is unfortufla e I need to bnng this matter to your attention but both Mayor Rita Mullins and I felt it necessary
since the followIng has caused Irreversible damage to SALF.
Several months ago we contacted Robert Half Technology, a temporary IT employment agency, to subcontract
technicians for our com puler and web site needs after the death of our IT Director. December 2005, Robert Half
subcontracted Annabel Melongo to provide programming, network. support and maintain our hard and software.
From the beginnIng Ms. Melongo had diffiCUlty wor1dng with fel/ow employees, but we disregarded In lieu ot her
comP\Jter skills. March 27th, 2006 Robert Half terminated Melongo as their contractor and since Melengo was in
the midst of a Important project we retained her full time. Her malevolens towards colleagues intensified until
April 27th when Vince Davis, Director of Military Affairs, feit it necessary to terminate Ms. Melongo from SALF.
As a standard tennination policy, Mr. Davis accompanied Ms. Melongo while she collected her belongings,
verified our computer passwords and exit her to the door. Since Ms. Melongo had knowledge to al/ our
passwords our Web Designer Mr. Chrlstlan Sass Immediately changed as many passwords he knew to secure
entry into our computer system from the outside, but failed to remember our CSL line and web/emaits sites.
The following moming, Friday April 26th. our employees were unable to access their computer files. With further
inves1igation we uncovered that all our files, data bases, etc., had been deleted. Throughout the day Ms,
Melonga came to the OffiC8, totally three times, and phoned, totaling four times, wanting to see only me. From
Friday through Sunday morning Mr. Davis and outside venden; True Consulting and Critical Technology
Solutions wori(ed continually to recover the missing computer flies unsuccessfully.
May 2nd, several employees alerted me trlat they received a distUrbing a-mail from Ms. Melongo. Her e-mail
indicated she was responding to an em ailed I sent to Brian Salerno, Pres. True Consulting that had been forward
to her. May 4th we contacted our web and a·mail provider. WebHSP in Colorado, who was able to foot print Ms.
Melango's actions from entry into SALF's s-mall system through Snallmall by using my password, retrieve and
forward two of my pen;onal emails to her account and then e-mail back to several of our employees wlUl a
personal message (see attached).
May Sth we filed a comptalnt with the SChiller Park Police Department #I 05·3219 of wflich Officer Marrazzo
stated he would forward to their Detectives.
This afternoon I and my staff received another lengthy e·mail from Ms. Melongo. Apparently she is not satisfied
with cur lack of response. Ms. Melongo Is not a u.s. Citizen but has a student Visa from Cameroon Africa and
lives in Palatine which all concerns Mayor Mullins.
We WQ d appreciate your advise in this sensitive matter.

Devine: ,
It is with extreme appreciation I write to inform you that due to the professionalism by your
Executive Assistant Randy Roberts, working with Detective Martin of the Schiller Park Police
Department a warrant has been issued for the arrest of the party who destroyed our computer
service. Due to the fear of a flight risk, ICE was also notified. In fact, I've been informed that
not only were they able to positively identify person who committed the crime, reimburse
charges made against our American Express credit card and the party who received the
purchases, but secured some of the lose data which is so vital for this Foundation.
The web world is a new wave for crime, which takes a great deal of effort to monitor, with few
laws to protect the citizen. It is only with the conscious dedication by/like/these two individuals
a crime was solved so others can be protected.,:
The relentless examination by Mr. Roberts and Schiller Park Detective Martin is a credit to you
as Illinois State's Attorney for the perseverance in stopping crime.
Congratulations.


President/Founder
