    Angry Identity Theft Warning-ex DEC, Compaq, HP Employees

    Just an off-topic warning to any other ex-DEC, ex-Compaq, ex-HP employees!

    Just got an overnight UPS letter from Fidelity Investments advising me that a laptop was stolen on 3/15/06 which contains the personal info (name, address, SSN, DOB, etc.) of all former employees of the above companies.

    Questions? Call 800-414-4015.

    They will also offer you to setup a Customer ID to be used INSTEAD of your SSN. This could be helpful to avoid future potential problems as more personal data gets stolen.

    Companies should be held responsible if any of these people's info gets missed used

    I know it sounds like an infomercial, but believe me . . .

    "Lawyers are standing by!" just call their 800 number and they are salivating waiting for victims to step forward for a massively successful class action suit! ["Massively successful" means the lawyers will make a fortune! Victims will get scraps!]

    What bugs my ass is that I left DEC in December 1992, haven't even contacted Fidelity about my pension plan, so I am "an archive member", yet some bozo had all my personal info on a laptop!!?? That "inactive data" should all be stored ONLY on the companies (hopefully somewhat secure) servers, not wandering around the countryside!
