Update on ABN Amro (Lasalle Bank) tape

Lasalle Bank’s tape of mortgage-related information on 2 million customers has been found by DHL. (Thanks to Adam for the heads-up)
No word on whether the tape was in a container which would show evidence of tampering, so this doesn’t foreclose (pardon the pun) the possibility of PII being stolen:

[…]the tape had been located and returned to the company’s Chicago data center from the same DHL facility where it was lost last month. DHL informed the company the package was found without the original airbill.
ABN Amro Mortgage said it had no evidence of misuse of data from the tape but would continue to investigate the incident.
ABN Amro Mortgage Group said it was extending a 90-day free credit monitoring program for customers to one year.

  1. ABN AMRO needs to step up to the plate and give the credit monitoring service for ALL bureaus…not just TransUnion. Hell, they were delivering the tape to Experian. What about Equifax? Not all creditors report to the same repository. Extending for one year? Big Deal, I’m exposed for the rest of my life….theives know no time table.
