NEWS ALERT: Identity Theft Concerns
There Are Now Over 200 Million Data Breaches! A Chronology of Data Breaches Reported
Since the ChoicePoint Incident http://www.privacyrights.org/ar/ChronDataBreaches.htm
Data of 26.5 Million US Veterans have been stolen. Read about it at:
My husband was a career Naval Aviator for 23 years. His father was a veteran for over 28 years. You
probably have relatives and friends who are in the service and/or who used to be in the service.
According to authorities, the laptop containing the VA data has been recovered. However, it is still
unclear what has been done to this laptop, where it's been, who had it after it was stolen!
For information on the real threat of Identity Theft and what you can do to minimize your risk,
please visit the Federal Trade Commission's website and other links:
As an affordable alternative to the 46 page FTC's Fighting Back Against ID Theft
booklet, there is an existing low-cost identity theft monitoring and restoration service that
can help you with potential legal and identity theft problems. We have been members of this service since June 2005
and were very relieved to have had the service when we received the news about the loss of the VA data. We highly
recommend it to anyone and everyone!
