Luther Days Conference Stinks Like Limburger Cheese.
Organizer Natalie Pratt Has Serious Legal and Financial Problems.
Conference Devoted to Anti-Luther Dogma, UOJ, Church and Change

Natalie Pratt - Event Coordinator - Facebook Photo

WELS.net is promoting Luther Days, reminding me of the time when the same website promoted the Church and Change conference. The differences are slight.

This is called a non-profit LLC,
but it is not registered in Wisconsin and there is no such thing as
a "non-profit LLC" in that state.


Funny how two women are organizing it:

Event Coordinator

Marketing Manager

Demonstrator at Safeway: related to ELS Pastor Tony Pittenger

Karalena Pittenger

    PROCEDURAL HISTORY


    The parties in this matter agree to the terms and conditions of the attached Stipulation as the final disposition of this matter, subject to the approval of the Department of Regulation and Licensing (Department). The Department has reviewed this Stipulation and considers it acceptable. Accordingly, the Department in this matter adopts the attached Stipulation and makes the following: 

  • FINDINGS OF FACT 1. Natalie R. Pratt, date of birth 01/04/1966, was issued a Private Detective license in the State of Wisconsin, license number 63-10327, on 01/20/2000. That license expired on 09/01/2004.
    Ms. Pratt’s last reported address on file with the Department of Regulation and Licensing is 1107 N. Sawyer Street, Oshkosh, WI 54902.
    2. TeCrime was issued a Private Detective Agency license in the State of Wisconsin, license number 62-16037, on 01/20/2000. TeCrime is a sole proprietorship owned by Natalie R. Pratt. TeCrime’s last reported address on file with the Department of Regulation and Licensing is 683 N. Main Street, Suite E, Oshkosh, WI 54901. The insurance coverage for TeCrime expired on 11/09/2003, and the status of the agency license was changed from “Active” to “Hold” in the Department’s records on 05/13/2004. On 07/21/2004, Ms. Pratt requested that the license be discontinued. The status of the agency license was changed from “Hold” to “Expired” in the Department’s records on April 20, 2005.
    3. TeCrime International, Inc. was issued a Private Detective Agency license in the State of Wisconsin, license number 62-16289, on 04/24/2003. TeCrime International, Inc. is a corporation owned by Natalie R. Pratt. TeCrime International, Inc.’s last reported address on file with the Department of Regulation and Licensing is 683 N. Main Street, Suite E, Oshkosh, WI 54901. Once TeCrime International, Inc. was issued a Private Detective Agency license on 04/24/2003, that agency effectively replaced TeCrime. On 07/21/2004, Ms. Pratt requested inactivity on the agency license, and the status of the agency license was changed from “Active” to “Nonworking: No Automatic Renewal” in the Department’s records.
    4. Natalie R. Pratt stopped practicing as a private detective and shut down TeCrime International, Inc., her private detective agency, due to her own serious health problems and the serious health problems of her daughter that have required ongoing treatment at the Mayo Clinic. Ms. Pratt had the phones disconnected for TeCrime International, Inc. and had all advertising and websites taken down for the Agency. Ms. Pratt has cleaned out her office for TeCrime International, Inc., has returned or is in the process of returning all client materials, and is waiting for the lease to expire on her office space.
    5. In light of her medical problems and those of her daughter, Ms. Pratt wishes to resolve these two cases by voluntarily surrendering her personal Private Detective License (#63-10327) and the Private Detective Agency licenses issued to TeCrime (#62-16037) and TeCrime International, Inc. (#62-16289), including the right to renew these licenses or seek relicensure in the future.
    CONCLUSIONS OF LAW
    1. The State of Wisconsin Department of Regulation and Licensing has jurisdiction to act in this matter pursuant to Wis. Stat. § 440.26(6), and is authorized to enter into the attached Stipulation pursuant to Wis. Stat. § 227.44(5). ORDER NOW, THEREFORE, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
    1. The VOLUNTARY SURRENDER of the Private Detective license of Respondent Natalie R. Pratt (license #63-10327), the Private Detective Agency license of TeCrime (license #62-16037), and the Private Detective Agency license of TeCrime International, Inc.

    7. Respondent TeCrime International, Inc. shall not seek to renew its Private Detective Agency license or apply for licensure as a Private Detective Agency with the State of Wisconsin, Department of Regulation and Licensing, in the future.
    8. Violation of any of the terms of this Order may be construed as conduct imperiling public health, safety and welfare and may result in a summary suspension of Respondents’ licenses. In its discretion the Department may, in the alternative, impose additional conditions and limitations or other additional discipline for a violation of any of the terms of this Order.
    9. This Order is effective on the date of its signing. Dated at Madison, Wisconsin this 9th day of December, 2005. Celia M. Jackson Secretary Department of Regulation and Licensing

This is what we do on a daily basis..tracking hackers...plus every other
imaginable computer or Internet crime. Therefore, I work with law
enforcement agencies and prosecutors throughout the US. The discussion up to
this point is true in theory. However, we always work back and trace to the
originating hacker. It is very common for the hacker to use a third party
computer to shield his activity. They may think that they are getting away
with it, but in reality...we can still track them down just as quickly. They
can run, but they can't hide! In fact, I'm working a case very similar to
this right now for a nonprofit agency here in WI. The stalker is hacking
into a 3rd party's computer, and sending viruses and Trojans in an effort to
destroy the computer system at the non-profit agency. I spent an hour on the
phone with the police yesterday, and they have no interest in the third
party's role, they want us to pin it on the originating stalker. And, we
have. The third party has been cleared and is out of the picture. And, if
that should ever happen to anyone on this list, where your computer system
is being accused of being a party to the attack, give me a call, I'll
personally help you prove your innocence.

I'm not trying to discourage any one from having a risk assessment done, or
on file for future situations, it is a good idea especially if you are a
large corporation. However, as a church, if you are on budget restraints, I
would not go out of your way to try and find the funds to put that in place.
Our office has done many risk assessments for businesses, and if anyone does
have a concern or wants to run something past me, please feel free to either
email (natalie.pratt at tecrime.com) or call (920-424-9960) me. (No, this isn't
a sales pitch...I won't charge anything). But, I have worked on the
computers of many many WELS pastors and churches, and I am pretty familiar
with what is out there in a lot of churches, and I'll be able to give you a
good idea on what to do. And, what kind of plan you should have in place or
preventative measures that you can take now, based on your particular
system.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns about
this.

Natalie
