    ASB E-Mails

    Post  jasminewu on Sat Apr 17, 2010 1:31 pm

    On Mar. 31, many students opened their inboxes to find what appeared to be an early April Fool’s prank from ASB Executive Council inside. The fraudulent e-mail informed students that Prom was being called off due to issues with safety and not having enough money to reserve another venue. However, soon after, ASB followed up with a legitimate e-mail clarifying the situation for students: the e-mail regarding Prom was not an attempt at an April Fool’s joke, Prom and Prom royalty nominations would continue as planned, and the e-mail was not produced by Mr. Tung or any ASB members. Many students breathed a sigh of relief, as Prom was not cancelled, but others raised questions: Who sent the email? Would they do it again?

    One of these questions met an answer a few days later: The unidentified individual, still feigning as ASB, sent out another e-mail saying that the schedule for (Day) would be reversed. However, because of the incident with the Prom e-mail, students receiving the message were more hesitant in believing it, and most students were unaffected. [quote]

    On Apr. 12, a third e-mail was sent; however, this time, instead of containing jokes that could be taken lightly and brushed off, the e-mail contained a false list of Prom royalty nominations. This e-mail was received on a whole new level of seriousness, as twelve individuals were singled out and put on the false list of nominations. [quote]

    After the third e-mail was sent out, actions made by ASB to discover the identity of the anonymous sender became more obvious: To prevent future confusion, ASB would instead communicate to students through the Student Bulletin and not through the ASB e-mail address. Also, in an effort to apprehend the sender as quickly as possible and prevent future e-mails, ASB put up a $100 reward for any individual that came forth with evidence that would lead to the successful identification of the anonymous sender. [quote from Mr. Tung if he responds]

    Though the anonymous sender has not yet been discovered, everyone can be assured ASB is taking all actions needed to reveal the individual’s identity.

    Good, you just need to get more quotes from the student body. Also, talk to people on ASB. I know Helen really wants to be in the Pow Wow, and I'm sure Leah will have a lot to say about this issue. Also, try really really hard to get quotes from Mr. Tung too. Thanks.

However, because of the incident with the Prom e-mail, students receiving the message were more hesitant in believing it, and most students were unaffected.

    On Apr. 12, a third e-mail was sent; however, this time, instead of containing jokes that could be taken lightly and brushed off, the e-mail contained a false list of Prom royalty nominations. This e-mail was received with more seriousness, as 12 individuals were singled out and put on the false list. Senior Joni Yamagishi said, “After receiving so much response from the [first email], they probably thought they would get even more response if it was done again.” ASB President senior Leah Wong agreed and said, “It was bad enough when it caused a ton of trouble for ASB and Mr. Tung in the beginning, but it really hurt me to see this person deliberately attack innocent students.”

The fraudulent e-mail informed students that Prom was being called off due to issues with safety and not having enough money to reserve another venue. However, soon after, ASB followed up with a legitimate e-mail clarifying the situation for students: the e-mail regarding Prom was not an attempt at an April Fool’s joke, Prom and Prom royalty nominations would continue as planned, and the e-mail was not produced in affiliation with ASB. Many students breathed a sigh of relief, as Prom was not canceled, but others raised questions: Who sent the email? Would they do it again?

    One of these questions met an answer a few days later: The unidentified individual, still feigning as ASB, sent out another e-mail saying that the schedule for a day would be reversed. However, because of the incident with the Prom e-mail, students receiving the message were more hesitant in believing it, and most students were unaffected.

    On Apr. 12, a third e-mail was sent by the unidentified individual. Senior Joni Yamagishi said, “After receiving so much response from the [first email], they probably thought they would get even more response if it was done again.” However, this time, instead of containing jokes that could be taken lightly and brushed off, the e-mail contained a false list of Prom royalty nominations and was received with more seriousness, as 12 individuals were singled out. ASB President senior Leah Wong said, “It was bad enough when it caused a ton of trouble for ASB and Mr. Tung in the beginning, but it really hurt me to see this person deliberately attack innocent students.” Activities Director Mr. John Tung said, "The content of the e-mails began as misinformation created to confuse individuals hoping to elicit student reactions. However, the most recent letter targeted specific students with intent to harm. It is my hope the individual(s) involved have realized the seriousness of their actions and will cease any further attempts."

    After the third e-mail was sent out, actions made by ASB to discover the identity of the anonymous sender became more obvious: To prevent future confusion, ASB would instead communicate to students through the Student Bulletin and not through the ASB e-mail address. Also, in an effort to apprehend the sender as quickly as possible and prevent future e-mails, ASB put up a $100 reward for any individual that came forth with evidence that would lead to the successful identification of the anonymous sender. “I hope it will be an added incentive because many tech-savvy students out there are already determined to help find this person,” said Leah. “We have an actual tech department from the district working on this and the administration is ready to disciplinary action on the person for harming fellow students.”

    Though the anonymous sender has not yet been discovered, everyone can be assured ASB is taking all actions needed to reveal the individual’s identity. Mr. Tung said, "Many on campus want to expose the individual with or without a reward. ASB, as well as administration and police, are aggressively investigating this and believe we will find the person(s) responsible."
