    Has T-Mobile flogged off your personal data?

    "Staff at mobile phone company T-Mobile passed on millions of records from thousands of customers to third party brokers, the firm has confirmed."

    Might be time to write to them and ask.

    Its free money to ex customers if they have.

    Perhaps I should post this as a deal?

    Why free money? I was with them till I switched in July but I did start to get phonecalls at the end of my contract offering me deals from other providers.

    Finally, might stop those bloody cold calls

    i got a call from a company saying they were t mobile and offering me a better deal on my pay as you go. i was gonna do it but then they said i had to have a credit check which involved me given them my card details over the phone. i said no just in case it was a scam. do you think it was t mobile or a scam?

    damages for what?
    From what I can see T-Mobile didn't sell the data, it was stolen from them, and I think any claim against t-mobile will be extremely hard to prove

    They kept it insecurely - permitting it to be sold on.

    If held correctly their staff would be able to check an individual persons details - but not download and flog off "millions of records"

    That is why there is court action pending against them under the DPA.
