Re: What Exactly Was The Breach ???

Oh yes, they have all your data from,

Any credit agreement.

Any phone contract.


Banking data.

Any company that uses a credit reference agency usually gives them data back to get a discount. This data includes all your personal info such as address, phone etc... and payment information such as when you pay a bill or if you miss a payment.The only people not in the data set are hippies that have lived in a self sustaining commune all their lives with 4 cows and a duck though the number of animals may vary.

I had the pleasure of working on this at a new telecoms company back in the day when their sharing of information was set up, so I must assume it works the same for everyone else and if you view your credit file it's clear that it does.
