I'll bet they made you show it to open the account, does not mean that they knew what it was, just a box to check on the application form for opening an account for a foreigner.

I am SRRV and ACR exempt. My SRRV card says ACR exempt and I needed to call over a manager to get cable because there was a spot on the form that said to submit copy of my ACR card. Even the manager had to make a call about it to accept my SRRV card.

The information that they will be storing on their system could easily be used for the wrong purposes if their system is hacked or someone decides to sell that database. Plus it really doesn't benefit us in the first place since it's used to get government services.

It wasn't the DOD that got hacked it was the OPM which were handling all of the personnel information for the DOD and other Agencies/Departments. They had a person in charge of Info/IT Security that had NO BACKGROUND in it at all and did not know anything about it. The OPM did not even know that they had been breached until the outside company to do Penetration Testing and Analysis on the network informed them that "Hey it looks like you guys have already been hacked". That they found out about the hack.

I love irony. A personnel office hires an unqualified guy and puts him in a position of responsibility.

Bet that they acted surprised that unqualified person equals disaster.

News flash for you my friend.

Your government and many other governments have all your personal information, what do you think happens when tey scan your passport at immigration, take a picture and thumb print?

The scanned info includes all the printed data and more, it is then matched up with your travels in and out of the country and in your home country can be easily linked to all other data bases that they have on you already. I overstayed in Indonesia once, when the immigration guy showed me the screen it had every entry and exit in Indonesia plus all my personal data. (time, place and first foreign place of arrival since they had flight numbers and ferry destinations listed as well)

I once asked at a medical clinic, travel health, what inoculations I needed, With a couple clicks of a mouse the nurse was able to print out my complete immunization history starting in January 1961 when I was 5 years old. ( I remember that day, huge scary needle but I got a lemon lollipop for my trouble.)

Cross index your birthday, name, social insurance number ( social security number for you from south of the border.) and a couple other identifying numbers and big data can track just about everything you have ever done.

Privacy is an illusion in the age of computers and the ability to crunch massive amounts of data at low costs.
