LaSalle Bank customer data lost, then found

Last week a computer tape containing the names, addresses, account information, payment histories and Social Security Number of 2 million people disappeared while in transit. The tape, which contained data on all of LaSalle Bank’s mortgage customers, had been shipped via DHL to Experian by the bank in November. It then reappeared two days ago. The shipment of the computer tape to Experian was not out of the ordinary. Creditors routinely ship information to the nation’s three big credit reporting agencies (CRAs); Experian, Equifax and Trans Union. This process is conducted to keep credit reports up to date.
