Looks like Copy Machines are Something Else for Us to Worry About


Via Jim & Maria Hart ~ Charleston, SC Real Estate (AgentOwned Realty):

Do you remember the last thing you had copied, either for yourself or someone else? 

You probably do.  It could have been someone’s driver’s license for your client file, a HUD statement, an earnest money check, tax returns for a mortgage broker, or a contract.  How about your insurance card at the doctor’s office or your social security card for a job you just accepted?

These are just a small sample of what we copy on a daily basis.  But did you know that the copy machine keeps a digital image of every single thing that it copies??  They’re all stored on its hard drive, ready and waiting to be re-viewed by whomever looks for them.

I don’t know about you, but to me, that it S-C-A-R-Y

My uncle sent me this YouTube video the other day which explains everything clearer that I can.  It’s a piece that CBS News did on April 25, 2010.  It is a couple minutes long, but you’ll be glad you checked it out.  Or maybe not.
