Please Help Me

Mr. President:

I am a victim of identity theft due to a breach in security by the SC Department of Revenue. They tried to hid it for a year but when problems arose for SC residents they came public. They sent out a letter and offered free credit protection. My problem? I was out of state with my ill mother who subsequently passed away. It was a horrible and lengthy illness and the death process took months while I watched the most important person in the world to me slowly slip away. I had no knowledge of the breach in security.

After many months of legal research I found out when, how and the attempt to cover the breach up. I also found that there was a fund set up to be administered through the SC Treasurer's Department. They only allotted $200,000.00 for the entire state of SC and then hid it. I am an ABA Certified Paralegal. I found it. I made two (2) claims. The last one was cut in half. I only claimed what I needed to get back on my feet. They are refusing to pay. The Statute of Limitations is coming up and even though my claim is in they are dragging their feet. I am about to be homeless because of this. My SS# has been sold around the world, I have no money, cannot get a loan or a job because a credit check cannot be run on me. I am the victim not the criminal. In addition, the Honorable Curtis Loftis lied to me and then put degrading remarks on Facebook!

I claimed $40,000.00 which would bring my bills current and hopefully help me start over.

I'm begging for your help. I know your wife has ties to SC. It could have been someone she knows and/or loves. It just so happened that by doing the right thing by my mother I'm the one to suffer. There is a Class Action Law Suit but it is stuck in Appeals which is where it will stay. No attorney will take me case. They are afraid of what might happen to them and their firm.

I'm a battered and abused woman who has been divorced since 2001. The only person in the world that would help me is in a better place. They stole inheritance monies as well but Bank of America is so bad at record keeping that I cannot prove (and actually do not know) how much was stolen from me. Neither my attorney nor my bank protected me.

I am a loyal American and a good daughter. Please help me. I have to have that claim money paid. I have been fighting with the SC Treasurer's Office since before Thanksgiving. I sold all my fine jewelry for scrap gold, etc. I'm out of things to sell.

I remain,


Brenda S. Cortright, CLA

Hello Brenda, I am sorry to hear about your Mothers passing. But please understand that she is in a better place now. She is still with you in spirit. And she will be with you for the rest of your life to help you with some of the more difficult decisions that you will have to make. She thanks you for everything that you did for her in her final months here on earth. Now I have a question for you if you don't mind? I am a little confused. Are you asking our President for $40,000.00? John Bubello John Bubello
