The Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles has notified approximately 120 individuals about an "accidental loss" of their personal information.

The report stated that on July 26, documented information including names, addresses and driver information contained in a safe at the Natick RMV branch had been lost.

Massachusetts law allows those effected to obtain any police report filed related to this incident. Victims of identity theft also have the right to file a police report and obtain a copy of the report.

Consumers are also allowed to place a security freeze on their credit reports which prohibits the release of information from a consumer’s credit report without written authorization.

The Mass. RMV reported that they have "taken every step necessary to address the incident, and that we are committed to fully protecting all of the information that you have entrusted to us."

To help protect the identities of those effected, the Mass. RMV reports that they are offering a free one year membership of Experian’s ProtectMyID Alert to detect possible misuse of personal information.
