Michelle Tan of the San Francisco Bay Area
First I should distinguish this Michelle Tan from the others the San Francisco Bay Area. Also
known as Min Tan (譚敏), she is in her late thirties and is married to Jong Lee. She lives in the
Valley Trails subdivision in Pleasanton, California.
The sales history given on that site shows as of 10/25/2012 Jong S. Lee and Min Y Tan were
the buyers, they were listed in reverse order from 6/19/2009. The recent transaction is listed as a
sale, but no price is listed, whereas the prior has a sales price and the house actually changed

I believe this woman made threats concerning my daughter for these reasons:
1. It was my first impression that she was the one who made the threats. At first I was
incredulous and did not believe that she would say such things. However, my original
supposition would be borne out.
2. She lied about ever having received communications from me regarding these threats.
This makes things black and white. Had she not made the threats she would not need to
deny prior communication. She could simply say she had no idea what I was talking
about. When I spoke to her at the time I was indirect, but later written communication
was quite clear.
3. I never heard these discussions about my daughter when she was sitting at her desk. The
conversations we're not coming from the area in which we sat, but rather from another
group. I heard these conversations after Michelle walked over in that direction.
4. She treated written communication regarding these threats like a joke. The note was
placed back on middle of my desk unanswered. Obviously, if someone asks if you heard
a threat regarding his daughter, and you didn't, you answer no.
5. Her husband, Jong Lee (above), received contracting work from SelectQuote after my
termination. Jong and I are both Java developers, and he was contracted to do work I was
to help Michelle with.
6. She also received more time working from home than anyone else in IT shortly after my
termination, according to Director Kirwan.
I've stated before that I can only take so much risk while fighting SelectQuote. Even after her
jackpot for running me out, Michelle would not enjoy as large an advantage in court as
SelectQuote would. Sure, Bob Edwards might try to drag SelectQuote back into this. Their loss
in the domain dispute did generate publicity for my story, however.
Surely, no matter how well trained Bob is, the risk of further negative publicity would give
him pause. He might become a little embarrassed about being at Michelle's beck and call were
he to be seen continuing to use company resources to defend her. Also, it would be quite is
stretch for SelectQuote to claim that this is defaming them.
