Identity Theft

Another report today of private information pilfered from or lost at FDIC..I would like to see the Government take the bull by the horns and punish the large firms and govt entities that require so much of your personal information and then fail to safeguard against thievery..It is an easy excuse to alert all of the victims after the fact and tell them you are the one that is responsible for the horrendous theft of your identity and you are totaly responsible to take any steps necessary to correct your loss..If these entities are not able to safeguard your information then I don't believe they are even entitled to ask for it..And just where is the US Government on all this shenanagry?? There is no excuse for them to sit on their hands and pretend they are not able to do anything...

  • I heard the the breach occurred sometime this year. This year? I feel so much better knowing they're hot on the case. I guess we are all going to have to bury our money in a fruit jar in the back yard like my grandparents use to talk about.
