740,000 Floridians at Risk

September 10th, 2008 by flanews

More than 740,000 Floridians are at a higher risk of becoming victims of identity fraud after a New York bank lost their personal information. Floridians who do business with the Bank of New York Mellon Share Owners Services are being asked to review their accounts for any unauthorized charges. The bank lost backup data with customer names, addresses and account numbers. The state Attorney Generals Office is getting the word out to customers. AG Office Spokeswoman Victoria Heller said those at risk need to contact the bank.

Anyone who owns stock who thinks they may have had any kind of relationship with Mellon, needs to contact the Mellon bank and find out if theyre on that list and what they need to do to protect themselves, said Heller.

The bank is offering free credit checks to customers who had their information lost.
