E.On can eff off with blatant publicity stunt
As we all reel from the fact that furtive members of T-Mobile staff have been flogging off the personal details of customers to anyone with a big enough blank cheque, news of another data leak has emerged.
Peculiarly-monikered energy supplier E.On (henceforth known as ‘Ian’) have fessed up after the personal details of 817 of their customers was distributed by mail in error.
One customer in Coventry said she was sent bank details and names and addresses of two Ian customers and was told by Ian that there had been a mix-up.
Ian spokesman Ian Ian said: “We use a third party mailing service to send the letters out, but this error is our problem and we apologise. It seems that customers received letters relating to their own address, and two additional letters for other addresses.”
Bollocks – 817? That’s nothing. It’s pretty obvious what’s going on here – Ian are trying to clamber on to the T-Mobile bandwagon by leaking a little bit of info and gaining maximum exposure. Well we’re not going to give their bullshit the oxygen of publicity.
Oh, we just did. Sorry.
