Personal Information Database Used Fraudulently by Former LexisNexis Customer
LexisNexis warned 32,000 people Friday that their personal information -- including names, birth dates and Social Security numbers -- may have been accessed from one of the Company's databases. The thieves, who operated businesses that were once LexisNexis customers, broke into mailboxes of businesses that contained LexisNexis database information. 300 people, all of whom have been contacted by postal authorities, had personal information used fraudulently. According to the Washington Post, the information was accessed between June 2004 and October 2007.
