Your data isn’t safe in the hands of HMRC. Previously, they lost confidential details of 25 million people.
Around 19,000 individuals were sent other people’s personal information in the post along with their annual award notice.
They each received one page of someone else’s tax credit renewal form which included a variety of different personal details.
These included names, addresses and dates of birth, as well as parts of bank account numbers, salary details and National Insurance numbers.
Another 31,000 people received the correct forms, although they were jumbled up in the mail-out, which started on Saturday.
One woman from Hyde in Greater Manchester said she had received a letter that included her neighbour’s earnings.
Geniuses. They JUST DON’T CARE about the actual and potential damage they do.
