“letter of concern”
I woke up to find an e-mail in my in-box with the subject line “letter of concern,” which is an excellent description of its contents. The writer claims to be concerned about an “illegal immigrant” Filipina in Gimhae he accuses of teaching English lessons illegally, and has somehow obtained private photos of her and her boyfriend, and his license plate number. Although claiming to have no “personal intention” regarding them the writer hopes I will take “prompt action.”
So, I am. If you or a friend are in Gimhae, have the initials C.P., C.M., or E.S., and sometimes wear a white t-shirt that says, “Fasigko 1’st Anniversary,” you may be being stalked.
