    Data lost for J.C. Penney, other retailers' card customers

    Better be checking your account...

    http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/headline/biz/5465182.html

    Personal information on about 650,000 customers of J.C. Penney and up to 100 other retailers could be compromised after a computer tape went missing.

    GE Money, which handles credit card operations for Penney and many other retailers, said Thursday night that the missing information includes Social Security numbers for about 150,000 people.

    I don't have one.
    After the accident I'm not allowed to have a credit card

    Another reason not to rely on tape backups.. they can be lifted easily.. offsite redunacy.. check into GE.
