Accidentally gave a stranger my social security number, my license number, my bank account number, and various other personal details. What should I do?
- Social security number
- License number
- Bank account number and balance
- My full name, birth-date, address, phone numbers, and e-mail address
- My parents' full names, addresses, and phone numbers
- Other assorted application-type information
I contacted k7 customer service. The rep kindly deleted the fax off the server, but it was also e-mailed to the user as an attachment, and there's no way of getting that back. The rep is also not allowed to reveal any personal details from the recipient's account.
I have no reason to believe that the mystery recipient will try and cause mischief. He is probably a member of that majority of people who would never impersonate or steal from someone else. However, just in case he turns out to be a member of the dodgy minority: what should I be doing to protect myself?
