Customer Service Representative Steal Customer Data for ID Theft

A customer service representative (CSR) misused customer-supplied credit card or bank account payment information. The CSR at the Alaskan telephone company is alleged to have used the customer information for personal purchases.

The telephone firm sent letters to about 400 customers recommending the customers check their accounts for unusual activity. The company believes fewer than 20 may have actually been affected.
