Default seen this on reddit sorry if wrong section OSAP problems

There is a very good chance that if you got a student loan between 2000 and 2006, outside of the places unaffected, that you are one of the 583,000 people who's info was on that hard drive. Especially considering no one in Quebec was affected.
step 1) 1-866-885-1866 << This number has been set up specifically to check if you were affected, and to answer any questions you have. It runs from 8am-8pm EST every day. Call it.
2) read this link and follow the instructions if you are on the list . contacting the credit bureau and your bank is super important, as identity thieves will try to open credit products in your name and the credit bureau can flag your account. Clearing up a ruined credit report is damn near impossible.
3) It might just be misplaced but why take the chance. I know some of you are joking about the not having to pay the loan back, but some of you sounded serious, so i figured I would post this as an fyi.
