Thousands of GE Employees Could be at Risk of ID Theft

September 25, 2006

There is news this morning that thousands of current and former GE employees could be at risk for identity theft.

A company employee's laptop computer was recently stolen from his locked hotel room while he was traveling on business.

The laptop contained names and social security numbers for about 50-thousand GE employees across the country.

A GE spokesman tells NEWS10 that there is no reason to believe that any data is being used criminally, but he says all employees are being offered a one year subscription to a credit monitoring service.
