Wells Fargo customer data stolen again

For the third time in a year, Wells Fargo & Co. has reported computers containing customer personal data have been stolen from a third-party vendor.

This time the $422 billion financial services giant sent letters to thousands of mortgage and student loan customers saying four computers were stolen last month from Atlanta-based Regulus Integrated Solutions LLC, which prints loan statements for a number of big banks. Wells Fargo did not say how many of its 4.9 million mortgage and almost 900,000 student loan customers were at risk. Though no passwords or PINs were on the machines, the stolen computers did hold customer names, addresses, social security numbers and account numbers, according to the Associated Press.

A spokeswoman said there were no reports of misuse and that the company was providing its free credit-monitoring service to those who enrolled by March 31, 2005.
