More info on the Identity theft

28,000 Navy personal Data were listed on a website.
Personal data on approximately 28,000 Sailors and family members was discovered on a civilian Web site in late June, and the Chief of Naval Personnel is working to identify those individuals affected, to notify them individually.

The Chief of Naval Personnel was notified June 22 that an open Web site contained five spreadsheet files with personal information including the name, birth date and social security number on several Navy members and dependents.

Individuals affected by this will be contacted soon by the Navy to ensure they have information on how to guard against identity theft. In addition, information on how to watch for suspicious activity on personal accounts is posted on the Navy Personnel Command (NPC) Web site,

Great! NavyHusband has to go fill out a form to obtain our Credit reports (I used to work for Experian!) Experian or TransUnion or Equifax. Any one will do.

Here's the Navy article here.
