@missapis:  Definitely call the person that did it, and let her / him have it. Talk to a supervisor if necessary.

You can keep an eye on your credit report to see if there is any change in activity. In fact, you are entitled to a free credit report each year. Google it. I remember equifax being one reporter of 3, but I don’t recall the other 2 off hand.

You can actually call Equifax and other credit bureaus directly and give them a heads up that your personal information has been disclosed to unknow third parties.  They will flag you and let you know if anything is reported that is new and perhaps false infromation.

Wow. I would lose. My. Shit. How incredibly irresponsible. I would call to complain, directly to the offender, also let them know you will be making a complaint at the management level. I would want reassurance that they will be covering any expenses you have to incur as a result of this as identity theft can be really expensive to deal with. If they won’t cover expenses I would threaten to sue if you end up having any costs or issues related to this. Seriously how can people be so boneheaded!

I would be super pissed too, but realistically, you have the same level of info on the other perso you they have on you. You are both unlikely to use it. Call/email the other person and get a vibe for them. If they are unresponsive, then you can worry, but most likely they’ll be like “OMG I KNOW I was so pissed too,” you can sleep well at night, and both can shred the document.

Put the fraud alert on your credit (or whatever it is called so nothing new can be opened without them calling you) so you can rest easy. But I bet nothing will come of this.

Doesn’t mean you shouldn’t rip the venue a new one. I’d be scathing (probably in a very simple way and cc’ing the other person and the boss), but reality is nothing bad is likely to happen (since you have their info too), and you’re only stressing yourseperson worrying about what you can’t undo. This info was sent to someone who is most likely local and has just as much to lose as you. It’s probably not going to fall into the hands of an identity thief.

Also, auto correct on the iPhone on the bee is the worst.

Who the fuck makes that kind of mistake.

I mean really.

I would throw a bitch fit.

I normally handle issues very calmly…but my social security number?

Oh fuck that.

What they did is totally unacceptable! Keep a close eye on your credit.
