Personal information of St. Catharines man lost by federal government
A St. Catharines man is upset and angry after getting a letter informing him he was one of thousands whose personal information was lost by a government employee
Back in November an employee in the Human Resources and Skills Development Canada reported the lost USB
On it, the personal information of about five thousand Canadians, including Social Insurance Numbers.
Paul Boyko says when he first saw the letter Monday after getting home from work he assumed it was a bill.
The letter offers a six year notation on his credit file, but Paul says that just means a criminal would have to sit on his information for seven years.
The privacy commissioner office is working with HRSDC to figure out what happened.
