Email to Mr. Dan Ruch, Vice President, Privacy, Canadian Impeial Bank of Commerce, CIBC

CIBC's Malicious Actions
All of my personal and business accounts were frozen last week. Please provide a report on how access to my accounts was obtained because CIBC Security said I lost my convenience card, which I had not. Also, please explain why I was told I had to sign a general waiver of legal rights to get back access to my own money.

Email to Mr. Dan Ruch, Vice President, Privacy, Canadian Impeial Bank of Commerce, CIBC

To: Mr. Dan Ruch, Vice President, Privacy, Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, CIBC
From: Andrei Oudovikine
Date: April 22, 2005

Regarding your email today, I believe your explanations do not meet the standards of federal laws and the Office of Privacy Commissioner of Canada. Written authorization is required to satisfy the law.

Please provide the following three requests for documents.

1. Document Request: Authority to Speak to Third Parties
Please provide me with a copy of all documents showing, with my signature, that I authorized Sue Fedorink and Sandra Fitzgerald to speak to third parties about my confidential business arrangements. Considering the passage of time, I believe it is reasonable to receive them by end of business today. If I do not receive them, others will assume they never existed. I know they never have.

2. Document Request: My Authority to Transfer Funds
Please provide me with documents showing, with my signature, that I authorized CIBC to transfer over $300,000 from my current account on August 21 and 22, 2003. Considering the passage of time, I believe it is reasonable to receive them by end of business today. If I do not receive them, others may assume they never existed. I know they never have.

3. Document Request: Use of Funds
Please provide me with documents showing what CIBC did with the over $300,000 taken from my current account on August 21 and 22, 2003. Considering the passage of time, I believe it is reasonable to receive them by end of business today. If I do not receive them, others may assume they never existed.

CIBC Privacy Office credibility
Not surprisingly, you are being given self-serving and inaccurate information by CIBC staff. Your contribution is relying on that evidence in the absolute absence of all statutorily driven documentary requirements.

I believe you are sincerely trying to protect CIBC interests. However, the "facts" you and CIBC executives are relying on will result in much greater scrutiny and harm to your corporation. For example, contrary to your sources, we have never had a meeting with Ms. Fedorink and Mr. Noble being present together at the same time.

CIBC Ombudsman: Failure to Deal
While you forwarded my concerns to the CIBC Ombudsman, Mr. Lachlan MacLachlan, I should mention that on April 8, 2005, he told us he refuses to deal with our issues.

CIBC's Malicious Actions
All of my personal and business accounts were frozen last week. Please provide a report on how access to my accounts was obtained because CIBC Security said I lost my convenience card, which I had not. Also, please explain why I was told I had to sign a general waiver of legal rights to get back access to my own money.

My request for the meeting remains.

Best Regards

Andrei Oudovikine
