This drives me up the wall

People (yes, people) are held by the short and curries by these companies (Experian, D&B, Equifax etc) and if one thing is wrong it is all over for you, and when they cock it up, it is still all over for you.

It's not like you can say, "oh we wont use them again" or "I wont buy a XX again from them" because we have no choice. We aren't the customer, just the product and of course, they all "Take security very seriously" and may even be "sorry for the inconvenience" when there's a breach.

I'll stop now.
