And you thought the DMV couldn't get any worse.
Two people who worked for the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission were arrested for allegedly selling the names, addresses, birth dates and Social Security numbers of motorists for "as little as $200 per identity," Ars Technica reported Monday.
Two others, who worked in taxes and realty, were arrested for a similar scheme, the article said. The prosecutor's office did not say who the buyers were for the stolen identities in either instance, or whether the identities were used for financial fraud. The article said the accusations are "troubling because they involve government employees," who are trusted with daily access to such sensitive data.
