To Whom It May Concern:

Under the Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following:

Any and all records about, mentioning, or otherwise relating to the research study entitled “Identity Fraud Trends and Patterns: Building a Data-Based Foundation for Proactive Enforcement," the results of which were published in 2007 (URL: https://www.ncjrs.gov/app/abstractdb/AbstractDBDetails.aspx?id=242217). This should include all existing documents pertaining to the planning, organization, publication, and reception of the research, including any communications with other institutions.

The research consisted of analysis of files provided by the Secret Service of over 500 identity theft cases. It was carried out by the Utica, New York-based Center for Identity Management and Information Protection and funding was provided by the Bureau of Justice Assistance.

The purpose of this request is scholarly and in no way commercial. If approved, it will inform academic work. Materials provided will be made available to the public. Therefore, I ask that any fees be waived. In the event that fees cannot be avoided, I would appreciate being informed of the total charges before having my request fulfilled. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you very much for your time and cooperation. I look forward to receiving a response within 20 business days, as required by the statute.

Sincerely,

Adam Webb-Orenstein
