CHICAGO (WBBM) -- The city of Chicago now says more than 60,000 people
may be at risk of having their identities stolen - after a laptop
computer was stolen from an employee of a company that handles billing
for Chicago Fire Department ambulances.
Anyone who's been transported by Chicago Fire Department ambulance
should be concerned, says the city revenue department.
The billing for ambulance transports is outsourced to a company called
DeZonia, and two months ago, somebody broke into the car of a DeZonia
employee and stole a laptop that contained personal information about
tens of thousands of people.
So DeZonia sent a letter to 63-thousand people who'd used Fire
Department ambulances, warning them.
