British officials have lost the data of thousands of retirees

December 19 2007

British officials told the citizens of the United Kingdom about their criminal omission: the Office of Inland Revenue lost the personal data on 6,500 pensioners.

This is the second in the last days of the statement about the loss of confidential information in Britain.

At this time staff did not make a slip agencies to hide that because of their negligence could be affected retirees. Personal data includes the names of the recipients of pensions, their addresses and telephone numbers of pension insurance.

Confidential information lost when the pension fund in September, sent them by courier to another agency. The package was received, but subsequently disappeared from the HMRC office in Cardiff.
Officials have already brought the affected retirees apologize, but the risk of becoming the object of "identity theft" for those 6,500 people had not yet passed, writes The Daily Mail.
