Capital One: Who’s in their database?

On May 18, Capital One notified the New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office that a “fraud ring may have obtained certain customer information.” The personal information included names, addresses, account numbers, Social Security Numbers, and “other sensitive information.” According to the letter to affected individuals from James McFadden, Vice President Chief Privacy Officer, the compromise may have occurred between December 2009 and February 2010.

Capital One offered those affected free credit monitoring services and reports that it has since beefed up its fraud monitoring capabilities.
