Cleveland’s Better Business Bureau is warning consumers not to be complacent about a growing number of data breaches at major corporations worldwide.
Cleveland BBB President Sue McConnell told News 5, the August 20th data breach at T-Mobile, exposing the phone numbers, addresses and account numbers of 2 million customers, is a classic example of why consumers need to monitor their accounts.
Fortunately, T-Mobile told its customers, credit card information and social security numbers were not part of the breach.
Still, McConnell said no matter how big or small the breach, consumers need to keep track of what information was taken from them, because that information could be used in scams against them weeks, months, even years down the road.
