The Gateway Pundit ^ | 11/08/13 | Jim Hoft

Warning: If You Sign Up for Obamacare – Your Information Can Be Accessed By Complete Strangers A St. Louis woman found out she was a victim of identity theft this week after she signed up for Obamacare.

Lisa Martinson called customer service after she forgot her password. That’s when she was told three different people were given the password to her account, her address and her Social Security number. Then she was told it would take up to five days to get her personal information offline.

Obama will say he is sorry that some *people* found themselves in this situation.

He says he takes EVERY American’s problems seriously.

He said so.

This information will scare people away. And that’s exactly what they want. Malfunctioning website, too. This is all by design, folks.

Wait. What? The Obamacare support guys had records of four different people (the woman and the three previous times) were given the same account information?

seems like they shoulda figured that one out a little quicker. Like, say, on the second person.

I wonder how they know three other people were given her info. If they put notes on her account, wouldn’t the second person have realized something was fishy? Maybe no one reads the previous notes. I see that happen ALL the time. Sometimes it feels like I’m talking to myself in the profile notes.

We’re giving them too much credit probably, assuming they can read. Why would any sane person enter information in that website! I’m afraid to go look at it just for the laughs. Even with my new spiffy browser update courtesy of Upchick.

I wouldn’t touch that site while wearing the world’s most reliable Internet condom. I can’t imagine how horrified people must be that have to go to that place because their health literally depends on it.

I’m in Maine, and this afternoon I was listening to a talk show being broadcast from Boston.

A woman called from Augusta, Maine, and she said that she applied for Obamacara online. The woman, who apparently is unemployed, claimed that her deductible will be $200 and her monthly premium is only $1.00....one dollar!

The kicker....she said she received a phishing call from someone who was determined to be calling from St. Charles, Missouri. The woman said this guy had her personal information, and he was asking for even more information.

The woman called someone at the Obamacare 1-800 number, and they told her that she was the victim of a phishing scam.

Speaking of what you would think is a reliable condom, I signed up for LifeLock after a little run in with an identity theft issue. Its not all that.

I had to load up with the same kind of services because the Chinese hacked my states’ entire taxpayer database at the department of revenue. That’s another long, sad story about governments and websites, and it ends badly, too.

Anyway, you’re right. None of them are particularly impressive. I’m much better off just praying that the person the Chinese sells my SSN to is the charitable type of criminal.

I've posted this before:

On Fox Business Network’s “Cavuto” on Wednesday, computer programmer and founder of McAfee, Inc. John McAfee said the online component of Obamacare “is a hacker’s wet dream” that will cause “the loss of income for the millions of Americans who are going to lose their identities.” For starters, McAfee said the way it is set up makes it possible for fake websites be set up to fool people to think they’re signing up for Obamacare.

“It’s seriously bad,” McAfee said. “Somebody made a grave error, not in designing the program but, in simply implementing the web aspect of it. I mean, for example, anybody can put up a web page and claim to be a broker for this system. There is no central place where I can go and say, ‘OK, here are all the legitimate brokers, the examiners for all of the states and pick and choose one.’” “Instead, any hacker can put a website up, make it look extremely competitive, and because of the nature of the system — and this is health care, after all — they can ask you the most intimate questions, and you’re freely going to answer them,” he continued. “What’s my Social Security number? My birth date? What are my health issues?” According to McAfee, there’s not a quick fix — and as long as it set up this way, it could be a playground for computer hackers.

“Here’s the problem: It’s not something software can solve,” McAfee continued. “I mean, what idiot put this system out there and did not create a central depository? There should be one website, run by the government, you go to that website and then you can click on all of the agencies. This is insane. So, I will predict that the loss of income for the millions of Americans who are going to lose their identities — I mean, you can imagine some retired lady in Utah, who has $75,000 dollars in the bank, saving her whole life, having it wiped out in one day because she signed up for Obamacare. And believe me, this is going to happen millions of times. This is a hacker’s wet dream. I mean I cannot believe that they did this.”

Sebelius said that they don’t do background checks on the navigators. There’s no way this will end well for any American going to the website or calling by phone.

Maybe we are all thinking too small. What we need is a secure system like "the mark of the beast," where it is not possible to buy or sell without it!

I would suggest that anyone who has entered their personal information on that site should go to Experion, Equifax and Transunion and put a "security freeze" on their account. It costs nothing to do this and it can all be done on-line.

If this is done, anyone who hacks your data off the O'Care site won't be able to do anything with it, at least not anything that involves a credit check and that covers a lot.

Report of a Latvian/Russian Hacker who allegedly accessed *all* personal user data entered on healthcare exchanges in Nevada and California ...now an FBI most wanted... “Alexsey Belan”...

http://www.whatdoesitmean.com/index1721.htm

http://www.fbi.gov/wanted/cyber

I’m guessing that data has already been circulated in eastern Europe for identity theft purposes...
