COLUMBIA, S.C. -- A South Carolina man says his personal information was compromised on healthcare.gov and accessed by a man in North Carolina.

Last month, Dougall logged on to healthcare.gov to browse for insurance for him and his wife. Late last week, Dougall received a phone call from Justin Hadley, who told him he saw Dougall's information instead of his own when he logged on to the website.

Dougall initally thought Hadley was a scammer, but Hadley provided him with documents containing Tom's personal information and screenshots of the website.

Hadley, who lives in Burlington, sent an email to WGHP on Tuesday confirming the report.

According to WIS, Thomas Dougall said federal officials finally reached him on Tuesday and told him he has been taken out of the system.

In an email sent to WIS,  Dougall said "It was just a shame it took a congressional hearing and lots of news coverage to get this done."
