Washington State’s Vancouver Police Department posted the names of more than 400 people whose personal information may have been compromised, to its website. The names, dates of birth and social security numbers were discovered in a plastic bin inside a home in the 19000 block S.E. 19th Way on April 9th during a response to a disturbance. A tub at the residence was filled with credit cards, driver’s licenses and stolen mail.
The list will include only first and last names, and is available at http://www.vanpolice.org (under “Current Topics,” click “Ledger List”). Anyone whose name appears on the list is encouraged to:
- Check their credit report for signs of fraud or theft.
- Check bank and credit card statements for unauthorized withdrawals or unusual charges.
- If you discover an unauthorized charge, report it to your bank or credit card company.
- Report it to police.
