Quote of the Day - Everybody likes a kidder, but nobody lends him money.
That's a bit of a different way then the banks handle computer data tapes.
They're shipped - among other ways - by Brown. Yep, banks protect their valuable money with armored cars, but consumer data ...
'Protected' via common carrier.
Your and my personal data goes from the bank to the credit agencies by regular, everyday truck, not by armored truck.
Think that practice will change anytime soon?
Apparently, Citibank has lost tapes of consumer data for four million of its customers. They were 'misplaced' sometime between when they were picked up from the bank and (not) delivered to the credit agencies.
My suggestion? Treat our data like you treat your money.
