My wife worked online until several months ago. Today she got several IMs from anonymous individuals who apparently got hold of an employee list from one of her previous employers. This really makes my blood boil!
One idiot knew her real name and the city where we live.
I'm sure I know how this happened. We have learned that many of these online employers have been downsizing
and moving more of these jobs offshore.
No doubt there are plenty of pissed-off former online workers,
and all it takes is one of them to decide to seek revenge by releasing sensitive information,
thus (the idiot apparently believes) potentially exposing the employer to lawsuits from people like us.
I'm about ready to throw #$%^&@ computer out the window!
