Man’s personal info stolen after using Obamacare website

February 5, 2014 | Joe Schoffstall - 282 Comments

A Virginia man’s personal information has been stolen after he signed up for Obamacare on the healthcare.gov website. Now, he’s questioning if the website is the reason why.

“There’s a possibility someone got my personal information from your website,” Virginia Beach resident Rich Guillory said in a video shot by WVEC-VA while speaking on the phone. “They knew my name and they had my number” — along with his address and social security number as well.

The day after he signed up on the website, he got a call from someone claiming they could help him with finding health insurance. When the call came in, he didn’t have time to talk.

However, they continued from two different Virginia Beach numbers. Guillory said he received about seven or eight calls before calling the number back. When he placed the call, a lady answered the phone and said she didn’t know what he was talking about. He then called the second number. The lady who picked up said this was about the fourth call she received like it.

The unknown person called Guillory once again. He answered and told them the number they were calling from is not legitimate. They hung up immediately.

“It’s easier than you think to make it look like you’re calling from a different number than you actually are,” Cyber Security expert Heather Engel told WVEC-VA. She also stated there could be a couple of reasons of why this is happening, and intrusion upon the healthcare.gov website could be one of them.

The administration wants chaos.

They want to be able to hit the  : A red button with the word Reset on it

 

Then they can redistribute the wealth without the parameters of that pesky ole Constitution thingy.
