WNDU-TV: News Story: Veterans and their families at risk for identity theft - May 23, 2006, 23 May 2006 [cached]
"I've been to Korea, Elusion islands, Guam, Hawaii, New Zealand," said retired veteran Don Gross.
Gross, of South Bend, has been a lot of places thanks to his time serving in the U.S. Air Force.
"I went in 1976 right after high school and I got out in 80."
But now he's worried his time in the Air Force may force him to go somewhere else: into debt, because of identity theft.
Don's name, social security number, and birth date were on a computer disk, stolen from the Maryland home of a government employee, an employee that never should have had the disk in the first place.
"I'm disappointed with the man who stole it, ya, more so with the one who stole it than the one who had it at his personal residence," said Gross.
Don's not alone in frustration.He's one of 26.5 million veterans whose personal information was stolen disk.
"All the loans he [the burglar] could take out with people's social security numbers," said Gross.
Gross says he plans to check his credit report for quite some time.
