Would this be considered irony?

This afternoon I received an email from McAfee Identity Theft Protection (which I received as part of the T-Mobile breach settlement) informing me that:

Identity Theft Protection by McAfee detected a match to your Social Security Number.
Alert
Found: Social Security Number
Potentially Breached Site: t-mobile.com - breach occurred in Aug, 2021

Is the email actually from McAfee? I've been getting spam from Costco and Kohls that are not from Costco and Kohls...





A little break from the grief...

Why would T-Mobile need your social in the first place?



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

I don't know about T-Mobile, but have run into companies requiring your SS# when applying for services. It makes it easy for them to run a credit check.

My guess is yes.






I am that Masked Man.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

They ran our credit when we got their old-guy Magenta plan and included new iPhones, trading in old iPhones. They charge a discounted amount monthly for the new phones over 2 years. I presume they did the credit because we were walking out of the store with pretty expensive phones that we hadn't paid for up-front.
