Get free (as in beer) copies of ChoicePoint records

You've probably heard of the significant theft of personal identity information from a company called ChoicePoint. While the likelihood that your information was stolen is quite low, they've given us a golden opportunity to see something very interesting: reports that your employers, insurance company and landlords can order on you.

It took me a while to dig for this, but go visit ChoiceTrust, which was set up in response to their recent theft of identity information. It's free--I was able to look up automobile and personal loss information in about five minutes. Don't answer any additional questions than what they require--I think it's good to keep them in the dark.

Why would they be so nice about this?
