Identity Thieves Hit NIH Credit Union
The National Institutes of Health's federal credit union has notified some customers that their personal information has been compromised by an identity theft scheme, officials said yesterday.

Lindsay A. Alexander, chief executive of the credit union, would not disclose how many of the institution's 41,000 customers were affected, but she did say it was a small number. "They already know who they are, and we know who they are, and we're working with them," she said.

The Rockville-based credit union's clients include employees of NIH, several biotech companies and hospitals such as Sibley Memorial in Northwest Washington. Students and employees at George Washington University also have accounts there.

Alexander said she was not authorized to disclose many details about the case. She said the theft happened recently, but she would not specify when. She also said she could not reveal what type of information was stolen or how it was stolen.
