Bell Canada: nothing important was stolen … only unlisted numbers …

A Bell Canada spokesman says no financial or security information was stolen.

The stolen information included names, addresses and telephone numbers and a list of Bell services the client subscribed to.

“No information relating to personal identification numbers, customer credit, credit card numbers, reference checks, billing or long-distance calling details were included in the stolen material,” the company confirmed in a news release.

Some unlisted numbers were also part of the stolen data.

Those clients are being contacted by Bell.

“There’s no indication so far that anyone else has purchased (the information) or acquired it or used it in any way,” Bell Canada spokesman Mark Langton said. (story)

    Get ready for more direct marketing calls.

    Do you remember the scene from Seinfeld where Jerry asked the phone marketer to give him his personal number?
