Hmmmmm, will I think about this next time someone asks to copy my personal documents.

I think we all know to destroy or replace the hard drive in our computers before we sell or donate them.  However, did you know that digital copiers have hard drives that store documents, too?

Please take a look at the video shared by Tammy Lankford.

I get a ton of emails all day every day.  Sometimes I take a quick scan and delete and several friends send me lots of links to this and that game and video and I don't have time for that, but today I got an email link for an attorney friend who said... YOU NEED TO WATCH THIS ONE, so I did.

I've decided it's worthy of sharing so take a look at this video.

Did you watch it?  All of it?  Please do.

Now stop and think about how many times you've been in a doctor's office, an attorney's office, even a real estate office and had personal documents copied.  Makes you wonder if they sell those copiers and who might buy them.  The most distrurbing part of the video to me was that a couple of the copiers that day were being purchased by someone overseas.  My office alone has 8 digital copiers.  One of which I purchased used after it had been leased and refurbished.  I think before I trash one again I'll be calling my IT guy and getting him to pull and destroy the hard drive.

Hi Katherine - It's really frightening, isn't it?  Identity theft is so prevalent in our society.  Information like this is so important to pass on.

Now that's a bit scary!  One more thing to be concerned about.  Just think of the copies that have been made with our information that we have no control over the copy machines.

Yep.  That's scary.  It wasn't something I really thought about.  I don't even know why a copier needs a hard drive.
