Following in the footsteps of others, Best Buy and HSBC Bank send private information without a method of notifying them of their mistake. They obviously do not bother to verify email addresses. So, Tom H***** is getting information from Best Buy about his account ending in 8954 sent to us.
The kicker is that Best Buy and HSBC included the statement that “We maintain strict security standards and procedures to prevent unauthorized access to information about you.” I guess that is, unless of course HSBC and Best Buy send it to the wrong email address they do not bother to verify them.
After speaking with a supervisor, they intended to “try to find the account number” and delete it, but apparently there is no method for them to look up an account number by email address, name or last four digits.
