Just yesterday it was reported that an outside contractor at the Four Courts in Dublin accidentally shredded two bags of post, which was sent to the court (and it’s just occurred to us to wonder why he didn’t question shredding unopened envelopes…).
Anyway, the point is, this week has seen more than one oopsie from the Irish. Allied Irish Bank yesterday apologised for sending the wrong details to the wrong customers.
AIB said that they accidentally sent the payment advice slips (that’s including bank account numbers and home addresses) to the wrong people.
The bank said the mistake, which involved sending receipts of foreign currency lodgements to the wrong addresses, was a computer error and that the Data Protection Minister has been informed.
Oooh, AIB is in trouble . . .
