Confusion Over Ladbrokes Data Issue

Following a bit of controversy the betting firm Ladbrokes has come out and stated that all customer information is safe with them despite a lot of online debate around the subject.

The issue began when a punter entered an online sports betting forum and said that he had been contacted by Ladbrokes and asked to change his email details because his account details had possibly been given out to someone else.

The site in question is the Sports Book Review forum and one of the users on there claimed that he had received an email from the betting giant saying that his user ID and password had been given to third parties who work with Ladbrokes. The communication said that they “do not believe” that any of their customer accounts had been “compromised” but that it was best that the user change their account password anyway.

No One Else Even Saw It

A spokesperson from Ladbrokes spoke to the games websites at CalvinAyre.com and said that there is “no suggestion” that any of the company’s accounts had been “accessed inappropriately” and that there is also no evidence that any third party has even looked at the data. The information in question has now been deleted and the Ladbrokes spokesperson said that only a small percentage of their customer base was affected by it anyway.

The rep from the betting firm finished off by saying that it was an “unfortunate error” and that they apologise to everyone who has been affected by it.
