I had to put this in twice. it asks for a website but then considers the address bad. Anyways – I have gotten that message from about 8 different providers at least. Chase, BofA, two of the airlines, etc. It seems that that they all use the same ’email-er’ company and that company was hacked. The only info released was the email addresses (no names associated or any other information so I’ve been told).
Since I received this notice, I’ve gotten two more. One from Charter Cable and one from Chase Bank. Big companies!
