A contract worker or employee of a contractor may have stolen and misused the personal information of an undisclosed number of customers.  The natural gas utilities serve nearly one million customers in the Chicago area, but state law bars the utilities from disclosing the number of customers affected. However, a November news report revealed that the theft of information had occurred in October and over 100 people were affected.  An employee working in iQor's human resources department was linked to the incident. The employee was fired and faces criminal investigation and prosecution.
