criminals steal private information from photocopiers

Ever since I learnt what computers were, I pride myself in knowing how to use different devices. With fraud and crime over-taking some industries, I also make sure that I know of the latest scams and viruses to keep myself and my personal information secure.

The latest edition of MyBroadband recently had an article that surprised me. There are devices that you type into, access the Internet, store personal and secure information. So I was very surprised to think of a photocopier to be a device I had to be wary of.

I have worked in different offices and environments using a photocopier to make copies of passports, ID, credit cards (incase they are lost / stolen). I am so relieved that my information was not stolen then. I am sure to be more secure from now on.
