A computer containing a million bank customers’ personal data has reportedly been sold on an internet auction site.
RBS says an archiving firm told it the PC had apparently been “inappropriately sold on via a third party”.
It said historical information relating to credit card applications for their bank and others had been on the machine.
The information is said to include account details and in some cases customers’ signatures, mobile phone numbers and mothers’ maiden names.
So, who can be trusted with our personal data?
