I'm wanting to get thoughts on something that has started to bug the hell out of me recently........
Laptops are being stolen which contain private information, and it seems to be happening with dozens of major companies almost everywhere. Nelnet
school loan services, the state college I attend, a local county child support agency, Wells Fargo, UPS had some packages stolen that contained
private data and then recently, my boyfriend who was in the army received info that the army had a laptop stolen with information regarding current
and past enlisted.
After the first (from my college), I was mad because of the annoyance.....having to check credit reports, police my personal info more...which I do
anyway, but now there was true threat. Then Nelnet, then Wells Fargo....and I started to think, "what the hell is going on?" Is it pure neglagence
on these companies parts or is it a ploy to further disentegrate consumer stability? Create another avenue for us to be more reliant on federal
reserve controlled companies when we have to start scrambling to pick up the pieces after identity theft? Or maybe it's the terrorits.....that issue
that is quickly becoming cliche....they're doing it to steal information on U.S. citizens to begin personal attacks on us and further cause pain to
consumer America because we're such heretics......or at least maybe that will be the explanation broadcasted on Fox News (if it hasn't been
What are your thoughts on these incidents that compromise our private info and why it's happening so much?
