We have family in Texas and there are a number of readers of this blog from Texas. Here is a story for those living in the great state of Texas:
If you`ve used the financial corporation Check `N Go recently you could have been exposed to identity theft.
Investigators with the Texas Attorney General`s office discovered that Check `N Go stores in Texas discarded business records in easily accessible trash cans behind the stores.
According to investigators, the records included customers` names, addresses, and social security numbers.
Investigators say if you`ve interacted with Check `N Go you should carefully monitor bank, and credit card statements for evidence of suspicious activity.
If you wish to file a complaint contact the Office of the Attorney General at (800) 252-8011 or online at www.oag.state.tx.us.
