Used Copy Machines and Identity Theft

This eye-opening CBS report shows how information in copy machines built since 2002 is saved on the machine's hard drive and anyone with half-a-brain (after watching this report) can steal the information within.

Posing serious security concerns, everything from bank statements, social security numbers, mortages and even asses have been scanned by one of these babies. As you can see in the report, even police departments offload these old copiers. Some copies even get sold to foreign companies. I am sure used copier sales have skyrocketed after this report. So think twice about copying ANYTHING.

"This year marks the 50th anniversary of the good, old-fashioned copy machine. But, as Armen Keteyian reports, advanced technology has opened a dangerous hole in data security."
