WAUKESHA COUNTY, Wis. (WTAQ) - Employees of a Waukesha County village are worried about identity theft, after their payroll information was stolen.
Big Bend Village Clerk Bobbi Woppert says the company that processes the village’s payroll had a laptop stolen from a car in Milwaukee last week. And police have not recovered that computer. She did not say who the payroll provider was.
The firm reported the computer theft to police, and told Big Bend employees that their personal information was no longer secure. It urged the employees to contact a credit bureau, and have a 90 day alert put on their credit reports to prevent identity theft.
Big Bend’s finance committee will discuss the matter next Thursday.
