My Census employment in 2010-2011 led to my getting a letter about the hacking "accident"

Since I worked for the Census Bureau in 2010 (diennial) and 2011 (one of the surveys), hourly, it looks like my PII got caught up in the Chinese hack. I got the dreaded form letter from OPM today.

Do I think it’s very likely anything would happen with it?  No, because of the “law of large numbers”. I don’t work there now and wasn’t in the loop for security clearances. 

But in late 2013, I kept getting emails asking me if I wanted to register my “doaskdotell” domain in China, even though it had been banned before.  That was rather odd.
