    I'm posting this to see if this problem has happened to anyone else.

    I received a call on Friday from a fellow AMCAS 2002 applicant saying that she had gotten an email from AMCAS with an email I had sent them attached at the bottom. That email included my Social Security number and my AMCAS ID number, which I had included hoping that AAMC could fix which ever problem it was I had emailed them about that day. I also included my phone number, which this girl (who incidently doesn't go to my school so it wasn't even a local problem) used to call me.

    Has anyone else had this problem? To make it worse, AAMC is of course not returning my calls or emails so I sent them a letter registered mail.

    This was obviously an unfortunate incident. I never realized tranmitting personal info like your SSN or Canadian SIN over email could be so dangerous!
