Computer theft raises fraud concern at Cal State L.A.

March 16, 2010 |  1:02 pm

Cal State Los Angeles has notified 232 former students that a computer stolen from the mathematics department office last month may have contained personal information such as their Social Security numbers and grades.

While officials said they did not know whether the information has been used for any attempted fraud or identity theft, they said they told the former students to notify credit bureaus and law enforcement about any suspicious activity. A toll free number, (800) 883-4029, has been established to provide additional information.

The names include students who took certain math classes between summer 1999 and fall 2005.
