To Whom It May Concern,
Lauda Finem have this morning been inundated with emails, all from very angry and concerned clients. Your take on the Accident Compensation Corporation’s conduct and in particular that of one of it’s managers would be greatly appreciated. Our research points to the New Plymouth branch and it’s manager, a Ms Janet Tinson.
In any event, the ACC clients emailing us are very unhappy, you may therefore have a bit of a problem on your hands? Your prompt response with an explanation for the alleged privacy breaches would be appreciated (we have compelling evidence that confidential documents have been forwarded without the appropriate consent to a totally unrelated authority).
One of our staff will later contact the Ministers office for more specific comment.
The Team @ Lauda Finem
