Royal Bank of Scotland, dam it so it could include my Halifax accounts. I'd better spend all my money before someone else does.

data being 'lost' or 'stolen' has been happening alot during the past few years. You would think these companies would destroy most information on a computer if they are never going to use it again.

lets just hope that it hasnt got into the wrong hands.

p.s. dont steal my munnies

withdraw all your money, put it in a large pile and guard it by rocking in a rocking chair stroking a shotgun

Its happened so many times recently...do something about it!!!

I mean surely someone should be held responsible and dealt with severely...its against the law to expose such personal info...

What happened to all the security we see on the films?? I mean, at one point an official left a laptop in Mcdonalds containing sensitive data of some type. I doubt it even had something as simple as Bitlocker enabled never mind higher end security
