Nevada home builder says customer info was stolen

Thursday, December 25, 2008

A southern Nevada home builder is notifying 16,000 customers that records containing personal and financial information were stolen from its Las Vegas office.

In a letter dated Dec. 19, Pulte Homes notified customers of the Nov. 13 theft of a box containing computer backup tapes with names, addresses, driver’s license numbers and financial account numbers for home buyers and company employees.

A Pulte spokeswoman told the Las Vegas Sun for a Thursday report that there was no immediate indication that any data was used for identity theft.

She says the company is cooperating with a Las Vegas police investigation, and that it was offering to foot the bill for a premium credit monitoring service.

Pulte Homes Inc., of Bloomfield Hills, Mich., along with its Del Webb/Sun City subsidiary, is one of the largest homebuilders in Las Vegas and the nation.


Merry Christmas indeed! Another business loses data and then gives the scripted response of” there is no evidence that the data has been misused.” There is no way they can know that! In any case , it is the victims, the poor people who had their data stolen or lost, are ultimately left holding the bag and that is not right at all. Businesses have to be more careful in safeguarding data and now by law they are required to, but most business still are non-compliant.
