Did You Know

It just popped into my head, this story that was on a news program (maybe 60 Minutes?)....

that when you use a copy machine, a personal one or at a local business, that your information from that copy stays embedded in the machine's computer? and they don't get cleaned off before being sold when a new one is to come in? that your information can be retrieved by whomever gets that copy machine?

Questions were asked like what can be done about it? I guess there is some technology that can erase it but it costs money to do so and companies aren't doing it.

Just something to think about the next time you go to copy your tax forms or any other personal information. This also goes for your personal copy machine, be aware before you resell it or give it away.
