    Subject: Update on Stolen NYC Retirees ID


    Please spread the word (broadcast)!

    Hopefully this news will relieve some concern and worry.
    I have spent time calling around PD Hdqtrs & City Hall. I can report the following:

    The City will very shortly be mailing a four page letter to ALL NYC RETIREES.
    This is to explain the situation of the missing computer and extending an invitation to each retiree to sign up for a one year FREE contract with Equifax for ID Theft Protection.

    The theft was compounded by the way the news media reports these things. The City claims that all vital info was encrypted and passwords and firewalls in place. However, the City has arraigned for the above free deal as added insurance.

    I will keep on top of this .....waiting to read the letter....and advise you if I hear anything more about the actual computer.

    Fraternally,
    Jim Ferguson,Pres.
    National NYCPD 10-13
    I don't know if this pertains to anyone here besides me. I didn't hear about this until today when I received an email.
