Valdosta- The personal information of thousands of people in south Georgia may have been accessed by identity thieves.

Someone hacked into a computer server at Valdosta State University that contained information for the VSU 1-Card Services. That's a multi purpose identification and on line debit card issued to students and employees.

The university encourages any student enrolled since 1997 as well as current employees and those who left between 1997 and 1999 to call a credit reporting company and place a fraud alert on their credit files.

You can contact Equifax at 1-800-525-6285, Experian at 1-888-397-3742, or TransUnion at 1-800-680-7289.
