Her husband sounds like a real sweetheart. FTA "Lopez is being held at a Broward County jail on unrelated assault and burglary charges." Please tell me they have not reproduced. Please.

WOW! Words escape me on this one. Glad she was caught.

The other day I saw a car with a magnetic sign that read...."Vacation Home Watch Service"
I thought to myself, who in their right mind would want to use this company.....all someone has to do is follow the car and....... bingo!

She wasn't only planning on helping people book that perfect cruise vacation but also how to make their cruise memories a living nightmare. One they would never forget.

Wow. Can't say I'm shocked, but it really stinks to read it. I have a home alarm system, but I'm guessing that cutting a hole in the glass wouldn't set off the alarm, why would it?

That's just awful.

We have an alarm system but also a pet sitter who comes by every day - oh, and a busy-body next door neighbor as well . . . .

Unbelievable! I wonder if RCI has any liability in the buglaries? Never in my wildest dreams would I think of something like this happening.

There are people who read the obituaries daily for this purpose too. Sad.

Other than an overwhelming sense of embarassment, I doubt it.

BTW, "information theft" by employees is not at all uncommon. We hear at least one story like this a month up here in Orlando.

So many people have access to our personal information like that!
Everything we do, people require that basic information.
It is too bad for the company to have to deal with this, since there is no way I can think of if people have no prior criminal record to know if someone will misuse / abuse their access to private information.
Short of psychological testing!
i wonder if they require fingerprinting?

Unless they knew she was taking that information and didn't stop her, no. I'm guessing the employee handbook clearly states that employees are not to take customer data for their own use. Common sense would dictate that you wouldn't have to actually put that in writing, but clearly common sense doesn't always prevail.

Wow! I am so glad I have an alarm system, a pet sitter that comes every day I am gone, good relationships with the neighbors, and parents who also check in while we are gone. Oh, and someone comes buy once a week to mow the lawn. My house will never appear to have its occupants on vacation. I guess this is why you have homeowners insurance!

I had an Aunt who had her identity stolen by a cruise line employee back in the mid 90's down in Miami. She worked in the office of the cruise line and had access to all of her information. Back then you gave you SS# when filling out cruise information. She was eventually caught. Made a mess of things for my Aunt for years.

And wedding announcements. My sister's house was burglarized during her wedding in 1972.
