Bank emails confidential info to wrong address, sues Google


As a people, we rely on Google for a lot. We count on the company to deliver information, email and more; but did you know you can now go after Google for your mistakes? That's exactly what one bank is doing after a teller accidentally emailed a document containing information on 1,300 accounts to the wrong address!

To top it all off, the bank still hasn't notified its customers about the data loss.

The Rocky Mountain Bank in Wyoming is suing Google to find out who owns a Gmail account that a teller mistakenly sent a document containing, "names, addresses, tax identification or Social Security numbers and loan information." After finding the error Rocky Mountain Bank sent an email telling the owner of the Gmail account to delete the sensitive information and followed up further asking the Gmail account holder to contact the bank to discuss the issue.
