EMU: Stolen Data

The Detroit Free Press reports that two former students at Eastern Michigan University may have filed fraudulent tax returns based on student records they stole: “The initial investigation into the theft of the records showed that the personal records of 58 individuals were taken, although it’s unclear how many of those people’s information was used, school spokesman Walter Kraft said in a news release. The school said another six people contacted the university after filing their tax returns and having the IRS reject them because their social security numbers were used on another filing.” [Source]
