FBI, Anthem staff to visit Ball State after identity thefts
MUNCIE, Ind. (AP) – Staffers from the FBI and the Indiana attorney general’s office will be among experts to visit Ball State University after at least 140 school employees’ identities were stolen.
The Star Press reports that health insurer Anthem Inc. has confirmed a Feb. 4 security breach included information from Ball State employees.
Some employees found out about having their identity stolen after getting tax returns in the form of pre-paid cards that were already used. Authorities haven’t linked the tax return fraud to the Anthem breach.
Richard Bramer, director of the consumer protection division at the attorney general’s office, was scheduled to visit Ball State on Wednesday.
FBI computer scientist Jonny Sweeny is set to go to the Muncie campus April 15.
Experts from Anthem will be on campus April 21 and 22.
