Verizon emails a customer spreadsheet by mistake….



Verizon Wireless accidentally attached the wrong file to an email and wound up broadcasting an Excel spreadsheet with the details of some 5210 customers to about 1800 people. Apparently, they were sending out a promotional email to some of their customers and instead of the electronic order form they intended to send. The promotional email was for a bluetooth headset.


According to the article above all of the customers whose information was leaked have Motorola Razr phones – so… if you have a Razr with Verizon wireless, there are likely about 1800 + more people out there that know you’re name, cell phone number, phone model and email addresses. (This is all that the article stated was leaked. Hopefully that’s the limit of it, however any data disclosure like this is bad.)
