Ripping off Navy!  That is not right.

I just e-mailed this to my brother. Seriously, with everything else they have to deal with, ID theft should not be one of them.

See, he should have used the loans from the later applicants to pay off the loans from the former applicants and they'd have an improved credit score and be none the wiser.

Exactly how long could you expect to get away with this? Greedy.

We're using a credit system that was designed in the 50s-60s....
The politicians passing laws to protect us from abuses of that system were raised/educated in the 70-80s....
The private companies acting as gatekeepers to our information still operate as if it were the 90s....

Is it any wonder that identity theft is the number 1 fastest growing crime?

Across the pond - in the EU - they just recently passed a law regarding COOKIES.  MOTHER FARKING COOKIES.  They've passed a law that requires websites that use COOKIES to tell people, in plain text, on their homepage, that they use cookies.  FARK ME SO HARD.  (For the non-tech savvy - cookies are small text files that have been apart of the web for...well, I'm too lazy to Google it, decades, at least.  They are harmless and every browser worth using allows you to enable/disable them at will.)  This is the forefront of cyber-security.  Clueless old politicians passing laws they don't understand about things they don't get.

Watch that condescending attitude, hotshot.  You've obviously never heard of SCONEs, microsoft's State Caching Object for a Network Element.

They're totally different than cookies, they're more dense and heartier, and you can throw them across the network further.

Wow.  Not really any different from any other insider-identity-theft scam.  But evil: so many property mgt outfits ask you for incredibly detailed info in an application.  And then they're handled by whatever shifty shiat heads work for a property mgt company.

Sure beats my story of the alcoholic superintendant who went into people's apts during the day and stole our booze.

you should really look in to LSO and Super Cookies, and they are covered under the EU law.

LSO - Never exipire. Offer 100kb of storage. Browsers are generally unaware of LSO and don't display or manage them. Via Flash they can access and store highly specific personal and technical information and they can send that information to servers without the users permission or interaction. There is no easy way to tell when an LSO is tracking you. Shared folders allow cross-browser tracking and all Flash applications use them.

I just heard another story on the radio this morning.  Some employee got coworkers information to apply for credit and paid off his house or something like that.

Strange the apartment management company and leasing agent doesn't have this story on their news tab on the website.   Instead there's something about a wine bar.

My building super did this once. My rent was magically diverted for a month and I got a summons to appear at the local rent authority.

The slimeball management companies that own many large apartment complexes will insist on getting you to fill out an application form and scan a copy of your drivers' license before even letting you SEE a unit.

That's crap, and you shouldn't put up with it.

I am a property manager, and I now have an awesome retirement plan.
