[Dataloss] University apologizes for mistakenly sharing student information

From: Dissent (Dissentpogowasright.org)
Date: Wed Dec 27 2006 - 15:25:52 CST


http://www.helenair.com/articles/2006/12/27/montana/000university.txt

Montana State University has sent letters of apology to more than 250
students whose names and Social Security numbers were mistakenly
shared with other students.

Eight students each mistakenly received a list of 30 or so students'
names and Social Security numbers, school officials said.

School administrators said they do not believe the information was
misused, but alerted the 259 students after being unable to
immediately reach all of the eight who received the information.

[...]

Humberger said the mistake occurred when a student working in the MSU
loan office mailed out packets to eight students who had paid off
their student loans. Each packet contained the contents of each
student's file, with the original promissory note marked as paid. But
each packet also contained an alphabetical list of 30 or so other
students with loans. The name of the packet recipient was highlighted.

SALT LAKE CITY -- A bag with hundreds of passport applications was
found at Los Angeles International Airport, nearly after a month after
it was supposed to be shipped to a processing center in Charlotte,
N.C.

"The applications appear to be intact and undamaged," said Kate
Goggin, spokeswoman for consular affairs at the U.S. State Department.

[Dataloss] [update] Wesco credit card fraud case still under investigation

From: Dissent (Dissentpogowasright.org)
Date: Fri Dec 29 2006 - 11:07:07 CST


http://www.grandhaventribune.com/paid/299204692597690.bsp

Federal officials are still trying to crack the credit card fraud case
that apparently stemmed from late-summer purchases at Wesco fuel
stations. They're also stepping up the pace to prevent identity-theft
infractions in the future.

[...]

Murray said there is no reason to believe Wesco officials or employees
had any part in the recent alleged credit card scam.

[...]

Wesco worked with U.S. Secret Service agents and the U.S. Attorney's
office to identify possible fraud and identity theft that allegedly
occurred between July 25 and Sept. 7 at some of the company's 51
Michigan facilities. Wesco spokeswoman Ginny Seyferth said Thursday
that there has been no incidents of questionable credit card activity
since Sept. 7.

Some Tri-Cities residents experienced credit card statement charges
during that timeframe from as far away as Tokyo, Spain and New York
for purchases they denied making.

Although Murray said he wasn't allowed to disclose details of the
investigation, he said the fraudulent charges totaled more than $3
million, which would be one of the largest heists to occur during such
a short-time period.

"There have been some abusers identified," said Murray, who last month
said several suspects were in custody. "We are taking steps to see if
they can be interviewed, but they aren't necessarily the type of
people who want to help law enforcement. We have no indication it was
an inside job."

[Dataloss] Tax mailing has Social Security numbers visible

From: Dissent (Dissentpogowasright.org)
Date: Sat Dec 30 2006 - 00:24:28 CST


http://www.jsonline.com/story/index.aspx?id=547475

When Wisconsin taxpayers pull their packets of 2006 state income tax
forms out of their mailboxes, tens of thousands of them will see
something even less welcome than the annual reminder of how much money
they owe to Madison.

They'll see their Social Security numbers, printed right on the
outside of the booklets - where identity thieves might be able to see
them.

About 170,000 tax booklets were mailed with Social Security numbers on
the address labels because of a computer programming error at a
printing company hired by the state, Meredith Helgerson, spokeswoman
for the state Department of Revenue, said Friday. That's about 15% of
the 1.1 million booklets mailed out to individual taxpayers who file
their returns by mail, she said.
