"An Important Message to Boston Globe subscribers"

An important message regarding the confidential financial information of Boston Globe subscribers.

February 1, 2006

Dear Boston Globe Subscribers,

We regret to tell you of an unfortunate event that occurred over the weekend which we are working diligently to address.

Confidential credit and bank card account information of Boston Globe and Telegram & Gazette subscribers who pay for their home delivery subscriptions by credit card was inadvertently disclosed on the back of slips used to label bundles of the Worcester Sunday Telegram. The bank routing information of some Telegram & Gazette subscribers who do not pay by credit card may also have appeared on some of these newspaper bundle sheets.

The records of approximately 240,000 customers may have been released.

Oh, I like both of the sig lines.

The Dr often had sensible things to say (which Dr was it BTW?).

Have to admit I've never been a fan of Taxachussets, partly because they keep returning a certain someone to Congress every election. Speaking of which...
