The company I work for recently was in the market for another company to buy part of the service business. They provided an employee list with names, addresses and phone numbers without our consent. Also, last month the Philadelphia police department arrested two individuals using credit card numbers of a number of employees. In the perpetrators car, the police found an employee list containing some 60 names, address and Social Security numbers of fellow employees which included mine. When the company was informed they initially denied it was obtained from them. Two weeks later they acknowleged it was STOLEN and WE should take steps to protect ourselves.
