Channel 9 discovered a Facebook page listing detailed personal information for dozens of people across the country, including two in the Charlotte area.
There are several random links on the page and a few posts that appear to be hacking instructions.
There was also a post from early Wednesday morning that listed bank account, credit and debit card information, PINs, driver's license numbers, addresses and Social Security numbers for dozens of people across the country including two in our area. The page has been reported to authorities.
Channel 9 tracked down the men and told them what was found on the page. The men said they recently received emails from who they thought was Bank of America asking for personal info. The men gave out their information, but the emails were bogus and their information was stolen.
Soon after, they were notified by Bank of America that their information was compromised. In one case, a thief tried to get a credit card in a different state. The men have since changed the cards and account numbers that are now exposed on the Facebook page but are still concerned that their Social Security numbers, addresses and employment information are floating around.
The FBI said you should not give out your information online, especially if you get an unsolicited request. You should always verify who you are giving your information to and then double check again.
