    To the lawyers and associates, my name is Josete Di Cavalcanti. I had my Hacker computer, and all my works were stolen. Univision 41, and Telemundo 47, but the network Globo do Brasil and TV Record also from Brazil, are using my works without my permission or knowledge, many films and series were produced here in the United States with my works. I have all the necessary evidence. I hope to contact you, thank you very much.

    My experience with these gentlemen was terrible. I was starting an affair with Attorney Evellin Sommer, I just have to say good things, she was always very attentive to me and she helped me a lot, we were working on a lawsuit against the APPLE producer for Plagiarism in the Movie, Letters to Juliet, that The film was all done with my Autobiography, after gathering all the evidence and doing everything she asked me, Evelin Sommer passed away, there is a year that I try to contact the lawyers who work for her, and no one answers my Emails, No one speaks to me I was on the phone and they would not let me in. Result I do not know how this is in my process, they treated me like I was an unmasked dog. (Evelin Sommer, 570 Lexington AVenue, 19 floor NY)
