OBAMACARE IDENTITY THEFT REPORTED IN VIRGINIA
human events ^ | february 5, 2014 | john hayward

In both cases, people who gave their personal information to ObamaCare’s train-wreck website, Healthcare.gov, were swiftly contacted by shady individuals who had somehow obtained their data, using caller-ID spoofing techniques to conceal their true identity.  They claimed to be insurance providers looking to get more personal information from the targets so they could “help them find a plan.”  One of the targeted ObamaCare enrollees, Rich Guillory of Virginia Beach, reports the scammers were very persistent:

Guillory signed up for a plan through the website on the marketplace. Just one day later, he started getting phone calls from two Virginia Beach numbers.  The callers were asking if he needed help finding a plan.

At the time, Guillory didn’t have time to talk, but the calls kept coming. He remembers getting seven to eight calls. Finally, he called one of the numbers back and got a surprise.

“A lady answered the call and said ‘I don’t know what you’re talking about,’” explains Guillory.

They will blame it on states that didn’t set up their own websites.

There is no need for the Left to spin anything because this story, like so many others, will remain largely unreported by the press.

Spread the wealth to Nigeria and Belarus.
If this becomes rampant, it could be the best way to take this POS down.

“Identity theft” is just a buzzword. You know, rightwing code for “we don’t want a black president.”

Good one! I can see MSNBC smugly blaming the birthers and voter-ID advocates for making one’s personal ID such a big deal.

The callers were asking if he needed help finding a plan.

Obviously they are simply taking advantage of Obamacare and starting their own business. This type of job must be what the Democrats are referring to being generated by Obamacare.
