Lost Bank Tapes May Expose Millions

HARTFORD, Conn. (May 21) - The bank told the state that a box with back-up bank tapes were lost in February from a truck that transports and stores tapes in its storage facility, Blumenthal said. The tapes contained Social Security numbers, names and addresses and possibly bank account numbers and balances, he said.

How does a bank lose millions of pieces of information about its customers and have no idea where it is? Is this an inside job or what?

this isent by far the first time something like this happend. its happened quite a few times in the past. the real conspiracy angle is the possibility that the tapes werent lost but rather sold.

I agree that they were unlikely to have been lost. This is totally shady. Banks are very unsafe/unstable more and more these days it seems.

While I was a video store manager I had access to hundreds of thousands of credit card numbers, along with other important information, and including the cardholder's signature.

But banks have much higher security. I work for a bank as a computer programmer and the security is so high that even the programmers are not allowed access to sensitive data.
