Interesting - this is right about the time I was billed for about $150 worth of bogus charges from a Denny's and a gas station in Arizona and Neveda on the same day - while I was working at my office in Minnesota - was always baffled how in the world that happened.

I must be missing something. People made bogus charges and bought paintball supplies. If there had been a true "data breach", US Bank would have been socked with hundreds of thousands of dollars in fraudulent transactions that would have affected hundreds, if not thousands of people. Sounds like these folks got ripped off by some pretty shady criminals - not the bank.

That's about the same time my card was charged $1500.00 in hotel and airline charges in 3 different countries.

Where is WikiLeaks to confirm this when you need them?

It will be interesting to see how this plays out. If it's true, it'll be yet another example of the big guy screwing the little guy.

Once again, US Bank is meddling into the smaller guys lives. You'd think the banks of all people would know that crime just doesnt pay in the long run. But I suppose if someone is able to pull it off for as many years as they all have, they think they're invincible and above the law. I hope these ladies are able to give them they're coming.

No surprise that the bank's attorney says the claims are without merit. That's the usual response. Who wants to make a bet that it's settled out of court, with all terms confidential?

In view of the Wikileaks situation, I’d like to offer a little hope: Read the Security chapter of the book "I.T. Wars" - and Google to the author's pro blog, "The Business-Technology Weave.” We use that book at work for new employee orientation. Great stuff. Thank goodness my boss read it (at my urging); he was clueless about security.
