She is a 13-time Emmy award-winning investigative reporter. She has dedicated 19 years to addressing viewers’ concerns as well as solving problems in the community. She is currently working for NBC6 Responds, Telemundo 51 Responde and Telemundo 51 Investiga teams.

Back in 2009, Myriam exposed mortgage foreclosure rescue scams that led to several companies being shut down by the Attorney General of Florida. The Regional Deputy Attorney General Cindy Guerra said “while it is impossible to calculate the exact number of people that were spared from scams by virtue of Ms. Masihy’s reports, it is clear a great number of victims were affected by her reports.

Only hours after Ms. Masihy’s reports aired, our agency received thousands of complaints from consumers who called to report being victims of Lincoln Lending’s unscrupulous actions. Prior to her reports airing, we had received less than 50 complaints which were the basis of our lawsuit.

Ms. Masihy’s reports made a real difference in the South Florida Hispanic community” during this time. She worked as the Broward Bureau correspondent for Noticias 23 before she became an investigative reporter.

Myrian has also worked as an anchor and a general assignment reporter for Univision 41 in New York City and also as a correspondent for the network shows, Noticiero Univision, Ultima Hora, and Primer Impacto.

Security Experts: Beware of Companies Scanning Your Driver’s License


At schools, hospitals and even cruise ships, you’ll likely turn over your driver’s license to security without a second thought. But security experts warn that having your ID scanned through those magnetic strip readers could be putting you at risk for identity theft.

“We don’t know if that information will be misused against us,” said Silka Gonzalez, president of Enterprise Risk Management.

Businesses use scanning technology to try to verify who is really going into their buildings. With just a swipe of your ID, computers can pull your personal information from it giving it to the companies and facilities you visit, including your date of birth, address, height, and weight.

Anthony Zagami, the CEO of Sisco, developed the technology knowing that businesses needed to know who is accessing their building to keep people safe. He showed NBC6 how computers pull the data instantly from the driver’s license.

“It brought up all of my information,” Zagami said.

He says it’s up to companies to decide what information they want to extract.

“We can collect as much or as less as you want,” Zagami said.

But security experts say the way institutions are collecting and storing that information is what could put consumers at risk.

“What are they doing with this information? Whose using that information? Who will have access to that information? Is that information being cloned? Is it secure?” Gonzalez questioned.

Cybersecurity attorney Luis Salazar said the information that’s extracted is exactly what identity thieves need.

“All that information is a platform. It’s a first stepping stone to commit identity theft,” Salazar said. “Maintaining that information for businesses, unless it’s absolutely an essential part of their business, is a risk.”

Salazar said handing over the information is also risky for consumers who don’t know they are protected by Florida law.

Florida law says private entities may not swipe an individual’s driver license except to:

· Verify its authenticity

· Verify age

· Prevent fraud

· Comply with a legal requirement

“Because of convenience and people not aware of the statute, they tend to just provide the information to gain access to a hospital, or a school or any other private building,” said Salazar.

But Salazar says security does have the legal right to ask for your ID and take a picture of it.

“If you don’t provide them with adequate identification you can be barred access,” Salazar said.

But what about public facilities? NBC 6 got a tip that Memorial Regional had forced a visitor to swipe her license in order to enter so we asked one of our producers to see if she could get in just by showing her ID and not having it swiped.

“The security officer complied then he took a photo of the ID,” said an NBC6 Producer.

While Memorial complied with her request, a second producer visited this Broward Health facility and had a different experience when she gave her license to a security guard.

“Before I handed it to her I said, ‘Could you please not scan it?’ She said okay. She took it and put it through the machine. And then she said what difference does it make,” said a Telemundo51 producer.

In a statement, Broward Health said, “We take the safety and privacy of all patients and guests seriously. We follow industry best practices for visitor registration and take aggressive measures to ensure privacy.”

Memorial said, “If you are in the hospital for care and did not bring an ID, you will still receive the care you need.” and that visitors can be denied access, “If it poses a physical safety and security risk.” As for how long this information is kept, Memorial says it “does not store this information for an unreasonable amount of time.”

The hospital visitors we spoke to say they have mixed feelings about handing over their information to strangers.

“I am concerned. I obviously don’t want my information to get stolen. I don’t want that but I also want to be safe inside the building as well,” Vadis Bautista said.

The security experts we spoke to recommend you ask security to write down your information or take a photo of your ID instead of swiping it.

We also asked Royal Caribbean and Carnival cruise lines about their use of this technology but they refused to talk about their “security procedures.”

Here at NBC6, we recently started using similar technology.

We reached out to our facilities team and were told that they don’t disclose our security protocols to protect the safety of our employees.
