Bank of America Says Customer Data May Have Been Stolen

Peter Hull writes on The (Charleston, South Carolina) Post and Courier:

Bank of America, one of the region's largest financial institutions, said this week that Social Security numbers and other information about an undisclosed number of its Charleston-area customers may have been stolen.

The Charlotte-based financial giant declined to say how many people were affected or what areas they live in, but it said it has notified all of them of the suspected breach in writing.

The ill-gotten personal information also includes names, addresses and telephone numbers, the company said.

Bank of America said it is working closely with law enforcement officials as part of an ongoing investigation.
