US - Verizon gaffe lets cell phone customer details slip

Verizon Wireless has accidentally distributed a file with limited details on more than 5,000 customers outside the company, potentially giving identity thieves a toehold. The spreadsheet file was e-mailed on Monday and includes names, e-mail addresses, cell phone numbers and cell phone models of 5,210 Verizon Wireless customers. All of the customers have Motorola Razr phones.
