05/24/2006 Archived Entry: "Who's responsible for stolen records"

26 MILLION STOLEN SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBERS and enough related data to make identity thieves very happy. Again.

Next time you hesitate to hand over personal information and some functionary looks at you as if you're retarded and assures you "your information is perfectly safe with us," ask the big question: If something happens to my data, will you personally take full responsibility, making me whole for any damage I may suffer? Make 'em put it in writing.

And of course, being stolen by freelance thieves is hardly even the worst that can happen to your personal records.
