A trip to the Stevens Hospital emergency room left dozens of people
with unexpected financial headaches.
That's because a manager for a billing company hired on a contract
basis by doctors at the Edmonds hospital stole patients' credit card numbers.
She gave the information to her brother, who investigators believe
then went on a spending spree, buying thousands of dollars worth of
clothes and gift cards over the Internet.
Federal officials said this case is one of a growing number of
identity thefts involving insiders who steal and sell personal
information they get on the job.
