Please stop stealing my identity
Tuesday, Jun 07, 2005
Great. Not that anything unseemly has happened to my credit reports yet (and yes, I keep a close watch), I'm not happy to read about the second time this year that my SSN was lost/stolen by someone I was compelled to trust with it. I mean yes, thanks Citibank for underwriting my student loans, but I hope you're not planning on trusting the credit reports of people whose social security numbers you've misplaced.

Okay, sure, UPS lost the tapes, not Citibank. But please, you're hiring a third-party shipper to move 3 million people's sensitive financial data representing billions of dollars in assets and you don't even encrypt it?

If you like it, please share it.
