ACCOMAC -- At least two Northampton County residents received letters
from Accomack County notifying them their personal information may have
been subject to unauthorized access as a result of the theft of a
county-owned laptop in Las Vegas earlier this month.
The two men, who are related, do not own personal property in Accomack
County and have never paid personal property taxes to Accomack County,
Accomack County Administrator Steve Miner said he has spoken to one
other Northampton resident who also received a letter, and he thinks
there were others.
"I saw the article in the Eastern Shore News, and I was thinking, 'Oh,
those poor people in Accomack County,' " said Craig Richardson, who
lives near Seaview in lower Northampton County and whose mailing address
is in Cape Charles.
Then he received one of about 35,000 letters sent by Accomack County
informing him that his name and driver's license number were on the
stolen laptop. He called Accomack County the same day to ask why.
