Nice of them to black out the street address, yet leave the ZIP+4, which is enough information to find the street address.

FTFA: "Hi  . My mom opened this credit card offer addressed to "Lisa Is A Slut McIntire."

If your mom is opening mail on your behalf for you, especially financial services mails, you have a bigger problem than being a slut.

When Victoria's Secret first started allowing online sign up for the catalogue we subscribed my friend's address with the name "Spanky Weinerstein".

cgremlin: I'm fortunate enough to run my own mail server, so I end up doing something similar all the time. Sam's Club needs an email address? I give them "samsclub@[mydomain].com". Underneath it's a wildcard address, so I don't actually have to set up all those accounts but still makes it trivially easy to find out who's selling my info.


I do the exact same thing.

That's what you get for paying data entry techs minimum wage in tiny sweatshop offices.

aevorea: I also knew of at least one tech who kept notepad open and would record the names and addresses of truly dickish customers and sign them up for free trial subscriptions to embarrassing magazines.


I've has to renew a few times but I'm still getting those subscriptions.  Sometimes they are delivered to the neighbors house but I tell them that I work with polymers and that is why I read so many publications about latex

brantgoose: Radak: Nice of them to black out the street address, yet leave the ZIP+4, which is enough information to find the street address.

That's what I thought. Our postal codes here cover fairly small areas, sometimes just one building. I don't like giving out my postal code to all and sundry, particularly businesses who may sell on the address list.

In rural areas where the population is scanty, the area may be larger but the population might be smaller so everybody in the postal code may know each other or at least know of each other. My family knows a lot of people up to a couple of hundred miles away through business, family and friendships. They should have blacked out at least part of the postal code for greater privacy.

The world is full of trolls and most of them just saw this poor woman's address on Fark.com.

Shame, shame, shame! Leave Lisa alone!


Wait a tick... isn't lisa the one who posted this on twitter? Hmmmmm, my apologies to those I may offend, but maybe lisa is just expanding the public exposure of her "title". I'm just saying ;-)

aevorea: Anastacya: Wrath of Heaven: Read that as "Lisa is a Slut Machine"

Me too.

And this is why you need to sanitize the inputs for the name fields. Or make it so that only certain people are able to correct them. I know that when I worked for Charter One many moons ago, those fields were locked. Sure, it defeats the purpose if the prankster (or asshole, in this case)  is one of the higher-ups, but being forced to submit something like that for approval and/or having a software flag for certain word combinations would have prevented this in the first place.

That was a big issue at the ISP call center where I briefly worked at several years ago. The middle name field didn't appear on customer statements so the technicians or account services employees would type in comments describing the customer's demeanor. I also knew of at least one tech who kept notepad open and would record the names and addresses of truly dickish customers and sign them up for free trial subscriptions to embarrassing magazines.

I'm truly grateful I was among those who was laid-off when the company down-sized. Yes, it resulted in me being unemployed for fifteen months during the height of the economic crisis, but it also saved me from any further potentially illegal activities that upper management was doing.

/the stories I could tell of that place ...
//and the potential lawsuits that place set itself up for ...


I guess I was lucky... Charter One had a comments field on the accounts that did not print out. It would appear on the main account screen and was obviously designed to jot down anecdotes and the like. Even though we could technically type anything that we wanted to, they audited those files pretty often and I am sure that there are a few people who lost their jobs over vulgar commentary. Or, forced to take training.

NatWest said it had launched an inquiry after Chris Lancaster, 18, of Tiptree, Essex, received a cash card with the wording: "Mr C Lancaster Dick Head".

The inappropriately addressed letter is the second to make news since last month.

In January, a Chicago couple who lost their 17-year-old daughter in a car crash received a piece of mail from OfficeMax addressed to Mike Seay, "Daughter Killed in Car Crash."

OfficeMax, which is based in Naperville, Ill., blamed a "third-party mailing list provider" for the insensitive mix-up.


I think their manual data entry people are Farking while inputting.
