If anyone in my family tells me they allowed themselves to be roped into this scam I'm going to kill them horribly with a tea spoon.

Yeah: all of the victims here paid money to give their DNA to total strangers.

It's a lemming stampede like Facebook, but exponentially more ridiculous.

They paid to give their DNA away, to people who then turned around and sold it. They made money on both ends

I'm really hoping my brother isn't stupid enough to buy a 23andme test. I can completely see him buying it without understanding how it can be used to raise his and my health insurance rates. It won't register to him even if I tell him and explain that there is now a massive market for peoples' personal data.
