Three banks in Britain are investigating how a computer with the personal data of one million bank customers was sold on the internet auction site Ebay.

The computer belonged to a firm that archives information for financial organisations and it was sold for about $80.

The banks - American Express, NatWest and the Royal Bank of Scotland, say they are investigating.

Is there anyone left in the UK now whose details haven't been misplaced, lost or leaked to the world in general? This is the third or fourth time something like this has happened now? What the heck is going on?

As I see it, this has gone far beyond the point of coincidence or freak accidents, the big ask is 'why?'.

The same people who've been losing all of our data are the ones who are pushing hard for national I.D cards and databases the government , I for one will not be getting an I.D card and will leave the country the day they try to make me have one, how can they be pushing to store more of our data if they can't keep the stuff they've got secure?

Interestingly enough, and a total coincidence I'm sure, the Royal Bank of Scotland was in the news for predicting that the American Economy was going to undergo a complete meltdown in Late September or Early October of this year (2008).
