Manís personal info stolen after using Obamacare website
Captitol City Project ^ | February 5, 2014 | By Joe Schoffstall

A Virginia man’s personal information has been stolen after he signed up for Obamacare on the healthcare.gov website. Now, he’s questioning if the website is the reason why.

“There’s a possibility someone got my personal information from your website,” Virginia Beach resident Rich Guillory said in a video shot by WVEC-VA while speaking on the phone. “They knew my name and they had my number” — along with his address and social security number as well.

he day after he signed up on the website, he got a call from someone claiming they could help him with finding health insurance. When the call came in, he didn’t have time to talk.

However, they continued from two different Virginia Beach numbers. Guillory said he received about seven or eight calls before calling the number back. When he placed the call, a lady answered the phone and said she didn’t know what he was talking about. He then called the second number. The lady who picked up said this was about the fourth call she received like it.

The unknown person called Guillory once again. He answered and told them the number they were calling from is not legitimate. They hung up immediately.

“It’s easier than you think to make it look like you’re calling from a different number than you actually are,” Cyber Security expert Heather Engel told WVEC-VA. She also stated there could be a couple of reasons of why this is happening, and intrusion upon the healthcare.gov website could be one of them.

Maybe I’m a mean bastard, but I have no sympathy for people who went to that corrupt and corrupted website and entered their personal information.

And so it begins....

There are thousands more victims of stolen personal data from healthcare.gov like Rich Guillory, the only difference being they don't know it yet.

Curse Obama and every Democrat lawmaker for this atrocity.

Yep, even though it is ‘mandated by law’.

If they made a law that you had to cut off your right arm, would you comply?

And the law doesn’t say that you have to use the corrupt and corrupted website to apply. So if you are going to be a sheep and sign up for 0bamainsurance, you COULD go to an authorized broker and do it more securely.

RE :”Yep, even though it is ‘mandated by law’.”

I in this case they don't have to go to the exchange, the only reason for doing that is to get the subsidy.

Impossible. We’ve been told the security breach at Obastardcare was an Urban Legend.

At one time in our country, returning slaves to their masters was mandated by law.

Probably not the first, and definitely won’t be the last info to be stolen off the site.

I agree. What part of ‘unsecure website’ did they not understand.
