There has been a serious breach of records with personal information leaked, affecting optometry students and ODs across the nation and from multiple schools.
There have been reports of students and OD's receiving new chase and amazon credit cards that they haven't ordered. It is not known as of yet how students’ names and information were obtained (although it is rumored that NBEO records were breached) or who is behind this.
FBI has now been alerted and an investigation is underway, they suggest everyone should:
- Check their credit reports and close any accounts that may have been opened on their behalf.
- Change any passwords affiliated with access to PII or bank accounts
- File a case here: http://www.ic3.gov
