If their profession is computer related, the chances that they will be  
able to understand what you wrote to them is relatively high.  It is  
highly unlikely that an ISP will hire somebody who don't speak English  
for "abuse" position.  Even the "basic helpdesk" personel is usually  
required to have at least basic knowledge of English.

Like you, I also have many relatives back home in Croatia.  Many of  
them don't speak English at all.  Back home in Croatia, I also have a  
bunch of friends that are system administrators, programmers,  
engineers, professionals, etc.  All of them do speak English.  It kind  
of comes with the profession.  With some professions, it is a huge  
dissadvantage if you don't know at least basic English.  Computer  
related professions are just extreme example of that.
