Woman Signs Up For Obamacare And Has Identity Stolen
Off the Grid News ^ | November 13, 2013 | Daniel Jennings

Posted on 11/20/2013 10:50:42 AM PST by sevinufnine

Experts’ warnings of Obamacare website’s complete lack of security apparently have been justified. The website gave at least 3 unknown individuals access to a woman’s Social Security number, address, and other data that could be used for identity theft.

Customer service operators at Healthcare.gov’s 1-800 number told Lisa Martinson about the unauthorized access when she called in to change her password. When Martinson asked for her information to be removed from the site she was told it would take 5 days.

“I just want my information that’s on there right now to be gone – right now – and nobody can do that,” Martinson said.

Oster’s concerns were even more troubling than McAfee’s. His charges against healthcare.gov included:

ICCS, the international governing body for cyber security, refused to certify healthcare.gov a secure site because it didn’t meet cyber security standards. “They launched that site knowing that there were grave concerns in the security,” Oster said.

When it was launched Healthcare.gov didn’t comply with the federal government’s rules for online security.

An Obama administration memo obtained by Congress indicates that the administration EXEMPTED healthcare.gov from the normal cyber security procedures for federal websites.

One of the main concerns Oster had about Healthcare.gov is that it redirects users to other websites without having them pass through additional layers of security.

We KNEW this would happen. This was a forgone conclusion from the very beginning. They’re going to use this as a “crisis.”

John McAfee said that there is NO WAY to fix the holes in the security at healthcare.gov.

“From a security standpoint you cannot fix these holes without completely redoing the architecture and that means throw the thing out and start over,” McAfee said.

McAfee predicted that the administration will make a cosmetic fix of healthcare.gov that will look good but the site will still be filled with holes. He also predicted there will be more problems as more and more people use the site.

Obama didn’t comply with the rules when he ran for president. Why would anything else he does be any different?

Difference between a government-run ‘business’ and a business. If the business is poorly designed and lets criminals get your data, they are responsible. If the government deliberately ignores all standard practices and forces people to use a website with large security holes, you are up the creek and have no recourse.

This administration reminds me of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.....

Sadly Obama is going to provide amnesty to millions of illegals (who will vote Democrat) and we already have 40-some % of folks who are welfare lovers. I’m very worried. :<(

FBI Warning;

After a recent wave of identify thefts, the FBI estimates there are over 500 fake Obamacare websites set up for the sole purpose of stealing your personal information.

So protect yourself and remember: the real one is the one that doesn't work.

In the end, though, they cannot sustain what they’re doing.
It will collapse. Probably soon, considering that they just added another 5 Trillion to the debt in the past 45 days.

An atrocious law that is written by criminals, enacted by criminals, and implemented by criminals is exploited by criminals. I see a pattern here.

Ahhhh...you are what Obama called one of the “only 5% of Americans owning personal health insurance outside of an employer”. Guess his math skills suck because that is about 1,250,000 American citizens. (Who clearly do not matter to him.)

They lied to her. The information will never be removed.

Sorry, this situation has me livid. WTF happened to the America my own family fought for in the Revolution? Kills me....We cannot “tell a woman what to do with her body” and she can have an abortion at the drop of a hat. Yet, we aren’t allowed to have control over our bodies now in any other fashion except abortion. We MUST have insurance whether we want it or not.

Probably not.

However all of these clowns from DC to your local government rats fear a civil suit.

Years, ago our local libs wanted to put in a halfway house for addicts and worse in our neighborhood about a football field away from a local elementary school.

A group of us met with the mayor and one of the city supervisors.

We were all vets, and we told the mayor that if anything happened to one of our children due to their allowing the pyschos in our neighborhood, she, her husband and family would not have to worry about lawyers and courts.

The city council member was a 6’4” marine, a tough guy and normally a good guy. He stood up and said are you going to threaten me and my family.

I said no and handed the card of my lawyer, who had written on the card, “Make my day!”

The Marine/council member said what does that mean?

I said my/our lawyer will take you to civil court, and you will be living on the streets if you hurt any of us allow this bs to go through.

A few other good citizens made the same comments on separate visits.

Suddenly the halfway house push was dropped.

That's nearly an exact quote of what John McAfee said on FOX news except he left out the word Nigerian. I saw the show. The host nearly choked when McAfee said it. It was very funny.
