This short relevant replacement video is in place until “Data Theft Scandal” is repaired. ‘The Data Theft Scandal’ is an unsettling and shocking documentary film showing how British consumers’ bank and other confidential information are traded by criminal networks for huge profits in India, the world’s new call center capital.
Undercover investigator, Sue Turton, takes it upon herself to expose how security and privacy is breached in a number of call centers, as confidential data ranging from credit card numbers to passport details are stolen or allowed to be sold.
She apprises the audience of a new term called ‘data farming’ – the unauthorized ‘harvesting’ of personal data to be sold on or exchanged for profit.
This film includes hard evidence of the allegations as Turton is offered hundreds of thousands of ‘hot leads’, full banking and financial profiles, to purchase; she also meets a former data thief and people who have fallen victim to this international trade.
