Chase Circuit City has joined the lost Personally Identifying Information club.
“Chase Card Services is notifying some current and former Circuit City credit card account holders that computer tapes containing their personal information were mistakenly identified as trash and thrown out. If your personal information was included on the tapes, you will be notified by mail.
No other credit card and bank accounts were affected by this.
Working closely with federal and local law enforcement, we conducted a thorough investigation and we believe that the tapes were compacted, destroyed and are buried in a landfill.
We have not identified any misuse of personal information connected to this incident. We will continue to closely monitor affected accounts.
