Identity Theft Update

IDENTITY THEFT UPDATE….Via Susie, it appears that LexisNexis didn’t have 32,000 names stolen from its database after all. It was 310,000.

So, anyone up for a class action suit here? Oh, wait. That’s pretty much impossible thanks to tort reform, isn’t it? Maybe some regulation of the industry? Too bad business groups are opposed to even the mild regulation that California currently has in place.

Oh well. The loss of personal data to identity thieves isn’t really a big deal, I’m sure. No need for alarm.
