    Giving The Fingerprint: Home Law Raises Concern

    Sellers Will Be Required To Provide Thumbprint Before Deal Is Approved


    Giving The Fingerprint: New Policy Raises Privacy Concerns - cbs2chicago.com

    Real estate certainly has its risks and fraud is a growing problem, but now there's a new law that's supposed to protect buyers. As CBS 2's Mike Puccinelli reports the new law will also place an unusual burden on the seller.

    Fingerprinting is something we often associate with crime. So the fact that Cook County home sellers--and homeowners across the state--will soon have to provide a thumb print left some people shocked.


    The new law, which is set to go into effect June 1, 2009, will force anyone selling property in Cook County to provide a thumbprint from their right hand.

    "No more so than any law abiding citizen walking down the sidewalk should be fingerprinted; just for selling my house, that's ridiculous," said Gerald Cain of Land Acquisitions, Inc.

    It is truly amazing, the excuses they come up with to get peoples' fingerprints.

    I know. They try very hard to get them in elementary school with a "give the police your child's fingerprint in case they're abducted!!!"

    As if. When was the last time you heard a detective on a child abduction case say, "If only I had the kiddos fingerprint I could find 'em."

    Don't bother me that much, but mine are already on file.


    I think it's bull**** for other people, though.

    Well if you'd just stop robbing liquor stores it wouldn't have happened.

    Shame on you!

    They already have mine too, since I used to service ATMs and drive an armored truck...

    No, they need the implanted chips for that. I wonder if they're implanting chips in newborn babies yet? Of course they wouldn't tell US about it...

    Probably upon election for their background checks.
