Standard Bank sends businessman private banking information of 100s of companies.Posted: June 29, 2011
A Cape Town businessman, Justin Plunket, received the private banking information of hundreds of companies after requesting statements on his own Standard Bank business accounts.
Standard bank has attributed the error to ‘human error’ and have said that they are taking the necessary corrective steps to ensure that the person responsible is held accountable.
Justin Plunkett had requested his bank statements and instead received an attachment from which he could read the names, addresses, account numbers, credit limits and balances of hundreds of companies.
It makes me uncomfortable that such a process was not automated, even bank employees should not have such information at hand.
