I will pull a credit report from time to time to make sure no one is using my information. When I did this with Clear Choice I requested they block out all my personal information before e-mailing it. I was told not to worry, the info. would be password protected.
I got the e-mail with an attached PDF that opened with just a click, no password. Every bit of personal information was on the credit reports that went across the internet unprotected. When I called I got a “Sorry, would you like us to resend it”.
I was shocked they had no idea what they had done or that the solution was to resend it protected.I’m going to need to rethink how I check up on identity theft, this certainly didn’t work out very well.
