Response to Segami (Original post)

Mon Jul 8, 2013, 12:40 PM

49. Last week, I received an email and text about a credit card purchase

Called and discovered someone had tried to use it at a Walmart in Arkansas. It was declined and no idea what they were trying to buy. But an online purchase at something called Gun America or something similar had gone through. God knows what they bought and thank Goddess it's corrected now.
But that's the type of info that could be collected and attached to someone and if that's ever done on the Internet, it is, up there forever.
Databases are not error free and they make it possible for those errors to replicated so many times that it's hard to catch and correct it all, if you even know where the multiple bad entries are. Even those people who say they have 'nothing to hide' could have something that could be viewed or twisted onto being 'suspicious' listed and connected to them.

And it's clear there are unscrupulous people who would do just like the GOP in NC and try to use it to attack.
