My name is Jiang Peiling. Because I heard that Lake Light Pavilions (湖光樓台 in Chinese) located at 1025 Market Street in San Francisco wanted to hire an employee, I went to get an interview. Only after I got there did I learn that it is an art museum and a non-profit organization for the public. Upstairs, world-class artworks are exhibited. Also, the Museum’s honorary president was Juan Antonio Samaranch, former president of the International Olympic Committee. I liked the designs of Lake Light Pavilions very much and also liked that job. To get the job, while I was not hired by the company, I personally and falsely used the company name of Lake Light Pavilions to send a false story fabricated by me on LINE, WeChat, and Facebook. I wrote that on an invitation card and sent it to a lot of people, while the company of Lake Light Pavilions was totally unaware of the fact that I used the company’s name to make up lies. After the company of Lake Light Pavilions learned about that, the company found me and asked me, “You are not an employee of any kind of our company. Why did you fabricate the lies out of nothing to deceive everyone?” I said, “I wanted to show my performance so I could get the job.” The company said, “Regardless of what your purpose was, you should not tell lies to cheat people.” I am very sorry. I am deeply aware that this is not merely a matter of making a serious mistake. Rather, I spoke lies and cheated all these people. Today, I specifically apologize deeply here. I ask the company of Lake Light Pavilions and the people who received my invitation card to forgive me.
However, I must say that Lake Light Pavilions is truly a very, very beautiful place. It can be said that it is No. 1 name brand of refined artistic essence and precious pieces of art in San Francisco. I fabricated the words saying that it can be used the site for dharma assemblies by people both in USA and overseas. Actually, the company does not provide it for dharma assemblies. Rather, it is for artistic occasions, weddings, and other purposes. You all can visit and take a look when you have a chance. The event on January 27 was made up by me. The company of Lake Light Pavilions knew nothing about it at all. Here, I tell everyone that I am very sorry. Please forgive me for the lie I told. Here, I apologize deeply to the company and to you all.
The Facebook user named 湖光樓台 (Lake Light Pavilions) that I used was a Facebook page I created personally by falsely using the name of Lake Light Pavilions. It is not the Facebook page of the company of Lake Light Pavilions. The company of Lake Light Pavilions has never set up a Facebook account or related pages.
The LINE user named 湖光樓台 (Lake Light Pavilions) that I used was the LINE I created personally by falsely using the name of Lake Light Pavilions. It is not the LINE of the company of Lake Light Pavilions. The company of Lake Light Pavilions has never set up a LINE account.
The WeChat user named 湖光樓台 (Lake Light Pavilions) that I used was the WeChat I created personally by falsely using the name of Lake Light Pavilions. It is not the WeChat of the company of Lake Light Pavilions. The company of Lake Light Pavilions has never set up a WeChat account.
I hereby give this statement of apology!
