NEWARK, N.J. - December 12, 2013 (WPVI) -- More than a half million Horizon
Blue Cross Blue Shield members are in danger of identity theft after two
laptops were stolen from the company's office in Newark, New Jersey.
The laptops were stolen during the first weekend of November.
They contained information about members including their name, address, date of
birth and in some instances their social security number.
Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey Director of Public Affairs Tom
Rubino says, "After discovering the theft, we acted quickly to engage law
enforcement and notify and protect all members who may have been affected ...
Nothing leads us to believe that the computers were stolen for the information
they contained or that any member information has been used inappropriately."
