Mistakenly Sends Customer Information Out with the Trash

Chase announced today that tapes containing the personal information

of 2.6 million current and former Circuit City credit card customers

were mistakenly thrown out with the trash. Chase attempted to

track the tapes and believes they were compacted and now reside

in a landfill. Chase has been monitoring the affected accounts

and hasn't identified any misuse of personal information.

Free

credit monitoring service is being offered to anyone whose Social

Security number was on the tapes. Also, those affected are being

encouraged to contact one of the three national credit bureaus

to place a free 90-day fraud alert on their personal file and

request a copy of their credit report.

Circuit

City credit card customers were the only ones affected. Other

Chase credit card customers do not need to do anything.
