    My End Point

    Information shared by Sprint online

    I am writing on here cause I don't know where to tun next. I had been a Sprint customer for about 2 years when I got an alert that my information was shared online but everything was taken care of. So like anyone I didn't worry about it. Months passed and I received an email (on my work email) stated that my information along with many others was posted on a website. The person that was kind enough to send this email was also a Sprint customer and took the time to copy all emails on this website to inform us of what happened. At first I thought he was full of it tell I googled my name which he instructed to do and sure enough my information (full name, date of birth, social, drivers license # issue and expire date, credit card # cv# and expire date, Address, phone #, email, and Sprint acct #, my 2 security answers with Sprint.) along with hundreds of other Sprint customers. I was as surprised as I could be and my first reaction was to contact Sprint. I attempted to get my information removed along with cancel my contract with them and it was like pulling teeth to even have some one call me back let alone remove everyone's information. It was the worse customer service I have ever received. By week 3 I was able to get me contract canceled because they new I wouldn't give up and that in fact it was that company that released my information. I was told that the situation was controlled and I did verify the website was removed and I just moved on. Until today when I got an alert from my ID Theft Protection alerting me that I had a new inquiry from Home Depot for a credit card. To your surprise no it was not something I applied for. My first instinct was to google my name to see if that website came up, and sure enough it is still up and running. I m guessing this is how this "wonder piece of s**it" was able to apply for this card. I have reported this once again to Sprint and so have many other Sprint customers and nothing is being done. Through all of this I have got many emails from the others on the website trying to let me know that I am on there and the steps they have taken and nothing has been solved. I am a hard working American that pays for everything and works really hard to establish myself and now everything is being thrown away because people are either being lazy or just don't care. I need help getting this out there and finding a solution to not only help me but the hundreds of others that are effected. Please help.
