Reports are newly emerging that suggest there would be more victims of the latest personal information leak of major South Korean credit card companies and banks.
Industry insiders say a number of clients have reported their cards were used without their knowledge despite KB Kookmin Card and Nonghyup Card presidents’ assurances there will be no further damage. Top executives at the bank and credit card firms tendered their resignations yesterday.
Prosecutors had also said they caught an employee of the Korea Credit Bureau diverting client information from credit card companies and no further data will be leaked.
Moreover, the Financial Services Commission reassured the public there would be no secondary damage. The commission also said if and when there is even a single incident of damage the credit card firms agreed to provide compensation.
Meanwhile, President Park Geun-hye ordered officials to look thoroughly into the massive leak of client information from financial institutions and make sure to bring those responsible to account.
