    The Labor Department has just provided identity thieves with everything they need to get started ruining your credit. Monitoring credit history does absolutely no good when it comes to trying to repair the mistakes, especially if your name and social are everywhere on the credit application, for example. Good luck to anyone so victimized by this error for a viable recourse that does not take untold number of hours to correct.

    Of course if somebody who has never made a mistake, such as Mr Cafero, was running the labor dept, this would never have happened.

    Of course, it was just a “coding error”. No individual was responsible. Stuff “just happens”. Will be interesting to see whether any bureaucrat stands up to say they were responsible. Taking bets anyone ?

    Some politician may announce having fired some data entry person, following the example of Governor Christie.

    This isn’t the first time Connecticut has had a major data breach and compromised taxpayers identities, as if the taxes residents pay weren’t enough of a violation.
