The credit company ChoicePoint is now admitting people in all 50 states may have had their identities compromised, including people here in Nevada.
Nevada's Attorney General says the letter he wrote, along with other attorneys general from across the nation, convinced ChoicePoint credit company...to release the numbers of victims affected by its mistake.
739 Nevadans will receive letters from ChoicePoint saying their identities may have been stolen by thieves.
Brian Sandoval also plans on introducing legislation, requiring credit companies to notify YOU if there's a problem with your personal information.
Right now, California is the ONLY state with that law on the books.
