Submission + - T-Mobile staff sold personal data (bbc.co.uk)

SpuriousLogic writes: Staff at mobile phone company T-Mobile passed on millions of records from thousands of customers, a spokesman for the firm has confirmed.
The suspected illegal trade emerged after the firm alerted the Information Commissioner, Christopher Graham.
He said brokers bought the data and sold it on to other phone firms, who then cold-called the customers, as their contracts were due to expire.
A T-Mobile spokesman said the data was sold "without our knowledge".
