I showed you the werewolves...what about vampires?

I've shown you how to hunt down a werewolf using Google. Vampires, however, are a bit more tricky. You might come to the conclusion that there just aren't that many of them, and Google is worthless in that regard.

You'd be wrong.

Vampires are just a bit more organized than werewolves. They hire out and subcontract:

A laptop stolen during a recent blood drive contained sensitive information on 268,000 Minnesota-region blood donors, Memorial Blood Centers say.

The laptop was in a briefcase that was stolen just before 7 a.m. Nov. 28 as workers were setting up a blood drive, said Laura Kaplan, manager of marketing and communications with the blood center. "They were setting up for a blood drive and this was in a briefcase," she said. "The police have told us they believe it was a random crime."

Memorial Blood Centers is a nonprofit blood bank based in St. Paul, Minnesota. It operates 10 blood collection centers in northern Minnesota and Wisconsin and collects about 125,000 units of blood each year.
It's a clever approach. The laptop is a virtual smörgåsbord for those in the seethe looking for a night out on the town. Blood type listings does away with the usual "potluck" approach. Vampires will pay top dollar that information. It was taken in the daylight hours (7:AM) to mislead investigators.

Don't be fooled. Vampires are just as, if not more, prevalent than werewolves. And, they are quite continental.
