Type of breach: 

An employee of IQCR wrote down names, Social Security numbers, and dates of birth from records. The records came from a gas company in Chicago and were processed by IQCR.  That information was then used to apply for credit cards.  This occurred in October of 2011.  The dishonest employee and her partner were caught after people alerted authorities about being declined for credit cards they had not requested.  Authorities discovered that the fraudulent credit requests all came from the same computer IP address and went to the same residential address. The couple face 10 years in prison per-identity stolen.  Over 100 people were affected by the breach.
