T-Mobile staff sold customer data

Identity theft is a major problem of the modern age. We are all scared of the prospects of unknown criminals using our personal information to impersonate us. But what happens when the identity theft is done by the very people we trust to protect it? Watch for some serious repercussions here.

Staff at mobile phone company T-Mobile passed on millions of records from thousands of customers to third party brokers, the firm has confirmed...

Christopher Graham said brokers had sold the data to other phone firms, who then cold-called the customers as their contracts were due to expire.

not surprised by any of these stories. The only way you can have any privacy in our society is by not living in it... ie: unibomber style (minus the bombs and killing people)
