    McDonald's Customer E-Mail List Stolen

    Link: Potential Access to Customer Data by Unauthorized Third Party - About McDonald's

    In the event that you are contacted by someone claiming to be from McDonald’s asking for personal or financial information, do not respond and instead immediately contact us at the number below so we can contact the authorities. Please remember, McDonald’s would not ask for that type of information online or through email.

    I think it unlikely they have my email address in the first place; however, any such communication would end up being read as thoroughly as all those invitations I get to increase the size of a body-part I don't possess and to provide security information for various banks.

    Under what circumstance would anyone need to give McDonald's any personal information? You can't even pay by card can you?

    Also, when you read the statement it sounds like MD's are trying to pass the buck a little. "Well, err, we wanted, erm your data, erm, so we hired company x, and so, err, they hired Company Y who hired err, hired Company Z, and erm, they sold it, erm, they sold it to Company A."
