[The truth has to be that this has been happening for a

[it...before you are sued under certain laws....
[Laws have increased the public exposure of our often it really

[change policy and hopefully enforce good policy.
House fires happen everyday. I now through the media hear about them
happening in Ohio even though I live in Missouri. But the magnitude that's
involved with people's personal lives needs world wide attention.
I guess identity and data thief has been around awhile but not as wide
spread or as important as it is now.
Accountability must play a major role here. What shall we do with "Big
Brother?. He is the ONLY one that can step in and insure punishment to a
company that I trusted my personal information too.
The amount of data thief is just astounding though. Who's doing this. Who's
behind it? Two kids on the couch with noting to do? I don't think so. What
part of a bigger picture is involved here? I'm not sure but I have this
sinking feeling we aren't going to like what's coming down the road.
