Re: The filing of a complaint of criminal activity by McAfee Inc., and specifically against their CEO and Directors, namely:
David G.DeWalt, CEO, President, and Director,
Robert B.Bucknam, Director,
Leslie G.Denend, Director,
Dennis J.OLeary, Director,
Robert W.Pangia, Director,
Charles J.Robel, Director,
Liane Wilson, Director.
(The above list as filed with the SEC on 21 Dec 2007, all of whom can be contacted at McAfee Inc., 3965 Freedom Circle, Santa Clara, CA 95954, USA, and 5000 Headquarters Drive, Plano TX 75024, USA.)
Dear Minister Amornvivat, this crime involves the theft of funds belonging to the Thai Sangha, totalling approximately 8,000 baht, which were donated by Thai citizens, relatives of His Majesty The King.
This theft was committed through internet fraud, mail fraud, and the illegal deletion of records for goods and services that were ordered from Thailand via the internet in September 2003 and never received.
Initial contacts with McAfee regarding this fraud were brushed aside stating that they had no records of such a transaction. We have proof that our transaction was indeed in their records and that these records were subsequently illegally deleted by McAfee.
Subsequent contacts to the head office of McAfee, on around six occasions, were ignored. We then filed an official complaint with the FBI Internet Fraud Office in February of 2004, but to this day have never heard anything from them. We note that one of the above-listed Directors, Robert B.Buckman, was formerly the chief of staff of the FBI, so this perhaps explains why.
In 2007, after being fined US$50 million by the US Government for criminal activities, McAfee appointed a new CEO, so we again contacted them regarding this issue. The response to our contact with the new CEO was that we were called liars and threatened with legal action; despite the fact that we informed them that it would take them all of three minutes to obtain a copy of this proof of purchase for themselves from Digital River, their distributor. Thus, their fraud was deliberate. (Being good Texas evangelicals they obviously enjoy insulting the integrity of the Thai Sangha.)
As evidence, we have the receipt and proof of purchase as maintained by their distributor at that time Digital River, and proof that our purchase was indeed in their records. We also have all of the original correspondence with McAfee dating back to 2003.
I note that if ordinary people had stolen such funds we would not have taken it very seriously, rather leaving them to face their own karma. However, people who receive annual bonuses of several millions of dollars who steal from The Sangha deserve special mention, as they are truly the riff raff, of human society. We really do not care one way or another whether anyone takes action upon this case, we just hope that members of the Royal Thai government recognize these people as what they are and treat them accordingly, namely, as common thieves ruled by greed and corruption.
