Meijer, Inc. Complaint - Invading Your Privacy
BURTON, MICHIGAN -- Recently, when I purchased alcohol at a suburban flint Meijer's, I was asked to provide my driver's license for i.d. purposes, 63 years young, I felt that was a compliment.
Then the cashier swipes the magnetic strip on the back of the license. I asked why and she replied they needed my birthdate. Sure enough, the date was printed on my receipt.
Um, folks, your license includes such pertinent, personal info as your social security number, address etc and is a great tool for the devious identity thieves.
calls to Meijer's were rebuffed, with denials that I didn't see what I saw.
Beware. Don't hand over your license.
