On behalf of our client, Samsung America Inc., ("Samsung") 
we hereby request that you cease and desist all 
inflammatory internet hacking, telephone hacking, flaming,
jamming, and other illegal activities.

If you have responded aversely to a recent bulk email

people who has performed fraudulent and actionable 
transgressions, thereby causing severe harm to our client.

under the laws of free speech.
