Here’s one more thing to consider in our efforts to fight identity theft. A Canadian friend sent this to me and you ought to consider viewing this video because it will help you understand that company copy machines contain hard drives.
It costs about $500 to upgrade a copier with software that either encrypts the data or erases it. Most organizations won’t spend this kind of dough. Imagine medical, insurance, financial organizations. Imagine social security numbers, addresses, critical information about your accounts.
The video shows the undercover results, and closes with the punch line – a shipment of used copiers is headed to two overseas countries.
