States are investigating a very scary situation involving the potential security
breach upwards of 200 Million United States Citizens.
Experion Credit is evidently involved in this breach as well.
I just got off the phone with Social Security, and my account is locked.
Experion will provide no information about me to Social Security.
I am assuming this is for security reasons.

To create an online Social Security account, Experion is pinged for credit,
job,address, information,etc. Social Security then creates custom security questions for you to answer
in order to create an online account.
According to The Social Security representative, who was very helpful by the way,
I am a ghost.

I would suggest to all of my fellow ATS Americans to perform a check up on their accounts.

A couple of things to note..


"Although we do not know the exact number of U.S. Info Search's records actually accessed at this point, we know that 200 million is false and that the actual number is much lower," the company said in a statement on its website.


Experian also said that none of it's data was stolen.

Regardless of how many were actually stolen, the frequency of identity theft (through credit card numbers and social security numbers) is disturbing. It seems each time it happens on a massive scale the numbers increase exponentially.

It makes me wonder, could something like this bring down America? Taking out the foundation, the people. Scary stuff indeed...

Any massive data breach would do great harm. Yes scary times indeed we live in!

Just think what an EMP attack would do.

FINALLY!

A reason to impose a new national ID card/system which could be linked directly to your DNA or EM signature!

A new world full of security . . . finally peace!

I wonder if this is tangentially related to the Target breach?

Of course Experion would "Downplay" this situation.
They are the #1 Credit Reporting Agency
I am only brave enough to say this because I spent 10 years working
for a Fortune 200 International Corporation. I can imagine that their
Public Relations Department is in complete damage control right now.
The first thing they will do is try to do is keep this out of The Press.
www.experian.com...

This is major Bad JuJu for them.

Well the Social Security Representative knew exactly what i was talking about
when I mentioned the "Target Breach" to her.

This is a big deal folks.

Check your accounts with Social Security and your Creditors.

I wouldn't want this to sneak up on you and give you a really bad day

that would last indefinitely.

Please be more specific
and avoid one liners
as it does not do you justice.
Please specify and then we can converse.
Thanks

Be careful of what you wish for.
Having is not always as motivating as desiring.

hmm.....i just tried to request a credit report...they couldn't verify my identity.....

i wonder if this is why i got hit with a hospital bill for a hospital i've never been to, and why the last cop to run my ID, was surprised at the fact that i'm not black...

methinks i may need to make a few phone calls...

Last week

I was told it could take 90 days to have my funds returned to me, the funds have since been returned to my account...no details received as of today, yet.

So, are people seeing unauthorized transactions?

When I said "works for me" I was meaning that my online Social Security account was still working. I hadn't heard about the breach. I can't say it surprises me, though. So much of our information is stored on servers that are in some way connected to the internet. Security is a big concern.
