Check out this bit from CapitalOneโ€™s press release on it's data breach

No bank account numbers or Social Security numbers were compromised, other than:

  • About 140,000 Social Security numbers of our credit card customers
  • About 80,000 linked bank account numbers of our secured credit card customers

Seriously just read it a few times. It takes maybe 2 or 3 times before it just sounds comically stupid. No bank account numbers or Social Security numbers were compromised except for the 220,000 that were compromised. But really besides that none. Just the 220,000. So zero. (+220,000).
