Hi, Everyone.... We just received this e-mail from a longtime friend. He's a software engineer who spends a lot of time in cyberspace. I consider him to be a very reliable source and not hysterical in any way. With that introduction, I pass this information on to you. Please feel free to pass it along to others. jack sherwood >Subject: Re: Personal Information on Lexis >_____________________________________________ > >Your name, social security number, current address, previous addresses, >mother's maiden name, birth date and other personal information are now >available to anyone with a credit card through a new Lexis database >called P-Trax.
