Yahoo! News - 200,000 Ameritrade Client Files Lost
: "OMAHA, Neb. - Leading online discount broker Ameritrade Holding Corp. said Tuesday it has informed about 200,000 current and former customers that a backup computer tape containing their personal information has been lost.
The Omaha-based company mailed the notices to its clients last week, spokeswoman Donna Kush said.
The company realized the tape was missing in February, when the package it was in was damaged during shipping between vendors, Kush said. Of the four backup tapes in the package, three were found, but the fourth is still missing, she said."
