Data Theft

The UK mobile phone operator T-Mobile has reported the theft of its customers’ personal information. T-Mobile (and the UK Information Commissioner) say the employee(s) received substantial payments for the information.

If this happened in Ireland the employee would be guilty of an offence under The Public Bodies Corrupt Practices Act 1889, as extended by The Prevention of Corruption Act 1916.

The payment is a bribe.
