From: Carlton Purvis

To Whom It May Concern:

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:

All documents related to the Advanced Data Processing, Inc. data breach that occurred fall 2012. Florida-based Advanced Data Processing, Inc. says an employee illegally accessed the ambulance billing system and leaked individual account information to a theft ring suspected of filing fraudulent tax returns. The breach was discovered October 1st by the IRS who alerted the company, according to a spokesperson for ADP.

I’m requesting any arrest reports, indictments, warrants, incident reports, or other reports related to the breach. I’m also requesting a copy of the correspondence between the IRS and Advanced Data Processing, Inc. alerting the company of the breach.

The City of Tampa police department says IRS special agent Casimir Tyska is the lead investigator and that the IRS made the arrest. I’ve contacted Tyska and IRS spokesperson Michael Dobzinski multiple times with no response.

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Carlton Purvis
