after reading psycho posts in forum i wouldn't want shoppers to know my ss#@ChrisCooper wrote:
It's very unfortunate that it happened, and I'm not minimizing the error, but does it help at all knowing that someone like yourself, another shopper, likely received your 1099? It's wasn't a hack, it was human error. As mentioned above, there was notifcation and free credit monitoring for a year. Ellis is not obligated to offer that.
For contrast, when the Federal government personnel records were hacked a few years ago, they sent out a letter and suggested using the free annual report to monitor your accounts. And that was in response to a malicious event.
Has anyone noticed activity on their account since February?

Actually quite a few of us got the letter so I'm sure there were others who don't frequent this forum.
I hope the "further action" is not an attempt at a some type of class action lawsuit.

@ChrisCooper - Is there a backstory here? Do you work for EPMS? Sounds like it.
@MSNinja - No Judge Judy. Why take small steps when you can take big steps.
My original post spoke of taking further action. I was previously a successful entrepreneur in the rental housing/apartment industry. Big trade show coming up next Summer. Perfect time to re-enter the market. My OP said there is more to the story but I won't reveal anything further. Your feedback was as expected. LOL
