Open plea for help to the FBI, sent 9/21/03:
My organization was publicly named as behind the Davis Recall by the
democrats, which is completely false. Following that, my computer was hacked and
at least two viruses were sent out through it, one which would be extremely
self-incriminating, was sent to Houghton Mifflin, a textbook publisher that I
have been campaigning against.
I believe this was done to set me up to discredit the Davis recall.
After close inspection of my webstats, I discovered a highly suspicious
"referrer" which I believe is connected to the whole thing. Only if you put your
cursor on the link, will it reveal that it connects to my control panel. I
contacted the web owner (Bob Schneider of thethoughtpolice.org) and a copy of
his denial is below.
Someone is trying to frame me and either this man is lying or someone is trying
to set him up as well. Since this involves the Davis Recall, or the framing of
an innocent mom, (me, smile) would you please investigate this? I'm afraid
they'll try another way to frame me, or worse. I've already contacted Agent
Wilkomm of the Santa Maria FBI but they don't feel it's high enough priority. If
you can't help me, would you please tell me who to report this to? There has to
be some kind of agency that can help when someone is being framed. Thank you
very much. Jen (alias) Shroder (I've changed my name legally, I have a family to
From Bob Schneider: Well I'm sorry if my past links are somehow persisting. It
has been since mid-summer since I took down links to other sites such as
[reputable news site] or articles that apparently had secondary links to sites like
yours embedded in the article. I'm not doing any e-commerce nor do I have any
confidential info on any of my pages. So I don't care if someone is actually
hacking into my domain which I highly doubt is happening now. I'll double check
with my ISP just in case though.
Even when I had such links they were simply links, not access to your ftp or
control panel etc. It just doesn't follow that a professor of social work would
jeopardize his career and an arrest just to be a nuisance. I'm not that stupid
or crazy nor do I have the skills to hack anything.
If some agent wants to contact me then he may. But as I say http://www.thethoughtpolice.org/na/.....
just hasn't been on my ISP for around two months. All the articles were in the
"../na/.." folder that is long gone. My ISP can document all the active pages
I've had, or at least I suspect they have em stored somewhere.
Hopefully this will work out for you. Actually the best way to trace is to find
the DNS for the computers that are accessing your site, not the domain names
that connect to yours. That's what I would do if I were and e-investigator. It's
harder to hide the computer DNS unless you really know what you're doing. I
couldn't do it myself.
Wouldn't a firewall help? I'll CC this reply to the FBI as well. I'm available
if you need further info. Bob Schneider
[If what Robert Schneider says is true, then
this copy from my webstats might be helpful, I believe the "Host" is the
computer ID that accessed the site through the link in question]

called me "Jen Schneider"]
