      Banks Notify Customers of Data Theft

      By PAUL NOWELL,
      AP Business Writer
      1 hour, 7 minutes ago

      More than 100,000 customers of Wachovia Corp. and Bank of America Corp. have been notified that their financial records may have been stolen by bank employees and sold to collection agencies.

      So far, Bank of America has alerted about 60,000 customers whose names were included on computer disks discovered by police, bank spokeswoman Alex Liftman said Monday.

      "We are trying to communicate with our customers as promptly as possible," she said. "So far, we have no evidence that any of our customer information has been used for account fraud or identity theft."

      Wachovia said it has identified 48,000 current and former account holders whose accounts may have been breached.

      "The numbers have increased as we continue to receive additional names from police," Wachovia spokeswoman Christy Phillips said Monday.

      Both banks are providing the affected customers with free credit reporting services.

      In a separate case with the potential for identity theft, a laptop containing the names and Social Security numbers of 16,500 current and former MCI Inc. employees was stolen last month from the car of an MCI financial analyst in Colorado, said company spokeswoman Linda Laughlin.

      The car was parked in the analyst's home garage and the computer was password-protected, she said. MCI would not comment on whether the data was encrypted.

      The bank record theft was exposed last month when police in Hackensack, N.J., charged nine people, including seven bank workers in an alleged plot to steal financial records of thousands of bank customers.

      The bank employees accessed records for customers of Cherry Hill, N.J.-based Commerce Bank, PNC Bank of Pittsburgh, and Charlotte-based banks Wachovia and Bank of America, according to Hackensack Police Chief Ken Zisa.

      Orazio Lembo Jr., 35, of Hackensack allegedly made millions of dollars through the scheme, Zisa has said.

      Authorities said they discovered the plot after they executed a search warrant at Lembo's apartment in February as part of a separate investigation. They seized 13 computers which contained details about the plan, Zisa said.

      Lembo received lists of people sought for debt collection and turned that information over to the seven bank workers, who would compare those names to their client lists. The bank workers were paid $10 for each account they turned over to Lembo, Zisa said.

      Bank of America Brought It On Itself

      I feel extremely bad for the people who had their identity stolen however it pales in comparison to the number of poor people who had their homes stolen by Bank Of America. Bank Of America is the nations #1 Predatory Lender on Car and Mortgage Loans. If anyone has a mortgage under any of their umbrella companies ie, nations credit, select portfolio services or fairbanks...run! Refinance if you have the chance. There are people who've been "hacking" B.O.A. for years it's been an on going secret war. Bank Of America has been under attack for several years now by disgruntled loan holders and employees alike...Class action law suits have hit this company hard and they're foreclosing on peoples property left and right to recoup.

      Greetings & welcome Daisho!

      Thank you for this update. I don't trust any of these financial institutions. They are all ripping our people off on a daily basis. You are so right about these loans and mortgages, that these companies give to us at all kind of rediculous rates, that we can ill afford to pay back too many times.

      When this happens we end up losing a large part of investments, and in a lot of cases lately we end up losing the house, car and everything else we killed ourselves try to get to be a part of this so called american dream

      Predatory lending is practiced in all financial institutions of AmeriKKKa. The problem is with this, after they suck out all our money, we are broke and distraught, and they can claim all types of loses for tax break.

      Even when they are found guilty of fraud and illegal activities, they end up getting bailed out from their crimes, by the same government that helps them to oppress us. We really as a people has to be double careful as to what we are doing financially.

      I hope members who have loans and mortgages with these banks take the time to really check out what is going on behind the scenes. Usually it's the customer who is the last to know.

      Much appreciation for your input. We all have to be on point for each other.

      Each one teach one so that we can all be uplifted and inspired.

      Peace & Blessings!
