“[M]ost digital copiers manufactured in the past five years have disk drives the same kind of data-storage mechanism found in computers to reproduce documents. As a result, the seemingly innocuous machines that are commonly used to spit out copies of tax returns for millions of Americans can retain the data being scanned. If the data on the copier’s disk aren’t protected with encryption or an overwrite mechanism, and if someone with malicious motives gets access to the machine, industry experts say sensitive information from original documents could get into the wrong hands.”

Wapshott Press-a-Go-GoOh, by the way, the Wapshott Press has recently become an Amazon Charity. Yes, Amazon makes you sign in, sorry. So, anyway, please remember us if you buy any of these wacky books I like to read, and when you're holiday shopping. A little money goes a long way at the Wapshott Press.
Oh, and the Wapshott Press is still a 501(c)(3) nonprofit! Tax deductible donations can be made here: www.paypal.com/us/fundraiser/charity/2716533 and thank you so much for your support!
