Someone tried to steal my GMAT score...and got caught by GMAC. [#permalink]
Expert Reply
All I know is what GMAC told me in the attached image / letter:

"We are personally reaching out to you regarding a fraudulent score report that was submitted to our department for investigation. This fake score report contained your GMAT ID XXXX and your Appointment ID XXXX. We suspect this person stole this information from your website mcelroytutoring.com and created a bogus "Official Score Report" to pass off as their own."

"We want you to be able to share your success on your website. To prevent fraud, we recommend obscuring your GMAT ID, Appointment ID, and any other sensitive data. We also want to reassure you that we have taken measures against the perpetrator."

Obviously, whatever strategy this person tried didn't work!

Yes—it's bizarre that someone would even try to steal a GMAT tutor's publicly available, 6-year old GMAT score, but it's also satisfying to know that GMAC test security is doing its job, and has "taken measures against the perpetrator."
