The request was refused by Scottish Police Authority.

Dear Scottish Police Authority,
28 Waverley Drive
Glasgow G73 3JF

Dear Sir or Madam
I wish to make a Subject Access request for information held about me in relation to an internet scam that took place four or five years ago.

I reported the crime to Rutherglen Police station and two police officers visited my address and took copies of emails from the scammers and other information relating to the crime. I called into the police station and requested the details and they suggested that I go onto Police Scotland’s website. Unfortunately my request was not treated as a valid FOI request, therefore I am now requesting the information under the Data Protection Act 1998.

My name is Thomas Cassidy and I reside at the above address. My email address is [email address]. My date of birth is 19.02.1949.

Please supply the information about me I am entitled to under the Data Protection Act 1998.

I need this information as I have found out that Western Union has been found to be complicit in the scam and the American government has told the company to compensate all of the people who used the the company to send money orders to the scammers.

If you need more information from me let me know as soon as possible, my telephone number is 0141 569 3843.

If you do not deal with these requests please pass this information to your Data Protection Officer.

Yours faithfully,

Thomas Cassidy

Dear Scottish Police Authority,
