Citibank exposes 600,000 customers' Social Security numbers

• Chicago Tribune,
Ralph Remakel received a Citibank letter postmarked Feb. 16 that notified him of a recent Citibank error. It turns out he wasn't the only one. In late January, Citibank mailed year-end tax statements to 600,000 Citi customers via the U.S. Postal Service that included the customers' Social Security numbers ... on the outside of the envelope. Citi called the mistake a "processing error."
