Woman Accuses Firm of Violating Privacy

Posted:

A woman from South Fayette has filed a lawsuit accusing her cable television provider of violating her privacy. Krista Cooney filed the lawsuit against Comcast Corp claiming that employees of the firm had emailed copies of a check sent to the firm to people outside the company, thus jeopardizing her privacy and risking her security.

The incident occurred after the woman sent a check to the company for the amount of “My Right Arm and Zero Dollars”. This came after she became fed up of the costs. She also put in the memo “Robbing Customers Blind.”

Of course the check that was sent in to the company contained details such as the woman’s bank account number, address, and signature, and she claims that her bank account is now at risk due to the check being emailed to others outside of the company.

A lawyer for the woman stated: “They’re still shocked and in fear of some major identity theft attempt. They’re so geeked by this.” The lawsuit claims that the Cable Communications Policy Act of 1984 forbids cable firms from disclosing any “personally identifiable information concerning any subscriber” without permission.
