In the car this morning the DJ was doing news, etc., and told a story of a woman in Pennsylvania who wasn't very pleased with her internet/cable and phone service provider bill (Comcast) so she wrote them a check and on the $$ amount line she wrote "My Right Arm."
The employees at Comcast thought it was funny and started passing it around through e-mail at work. That e-mail eventually made it of out OUT of the office and into PCs everywhere.
However, when the employee at Comcast responsible for starting the email sent it out, he or she forgot to black out any and all personal information contained on the check so countless people around the country and, who knows, maybe even world, know this lady's name, address, phone number and bank information.
She had no idea any of this had been going on until someone in Colorado called her to say she had received an email with her personal info!
I would be so perturbed, to say the least. I mean, yeah, maybe she shouldn't have written a check like that but I'll bet it's the not the first time that joke has been played. IMO, responsibility completely lies in the hands of the people at Comcast.
