Excellent work boys!
The taxman could face another investigation after it emerged that the confidential details of parents, included on letters to apologise for the lost discs fiasco, have been sent to old addresses.
HM Revenue and Customs sent out letters with national insurance and child benefit numbers printed on the top and many have been dropping through the wrong letter boxes, raising new fears of a security breach.
One mother is reported to have been posted the codes of seven strangers, along with a letter apologising for breaching her own privacy. The details can be used by identity thieves to open bank accounts or claim benefits.
"Dear Mrs. Miggins. We\’re very sorry we lost your personal records. To make up for this we\’re sending them again through the post so that those identity thieves not bright enough to buy them off the Russian internet sites have another chance to steal them. Got to bridge the digital divide, don\’t you know?"
Well done lads! Please, carry on! You\’ll destroy trust in the competence of the State for a generation. .
