26.5mil Veterans SSN#'s and info compromised

I received a letter this week from the Department of Veterans Affairs, informing me an employee of theirs took home sensitive information, and was subsequently burglarized - compromising 26.5 million veterans personal information including social security numbers...


This is a no BS'er. You veterans should be receiving something in the mail. I will edit this post, as the paperwork provides a hotline number if your information is utilized by the culprits.

edit:> 1 (800) FED INFO (1-800-333-4636).

It is currently under investigation with the Inspector General and FBI.

Actually, this was a separate incident I think. The previous was the USMC only.

Re: 26.5mil Veterans SSN#'s and info compromised

Yes sir, I did.

Yet another slipup. This one looks worse...

Story

The above was kinda vague though.

Yeah, it's bad. The Department of Veteran Affairs requested "home of record" info from the IRS, which was granted. That's pretty bad.

I didn't re-read the Marine Corps. thread past the initial. Can you merge them?
