The website Vice reports an anonymous author of a forum post offered about a third of T-Mobile USA's customer data in exchange for 6 Bitcoins (about $280,000). Vice has reviewed some of the data and confirmed its authenticity.

The data collection includes

  •     Names,
  •     addresses,
  •     phone numbers,
  •     social security numbers,
  •     driver's license data and
  •     IMEI numbers unique to each mobile device.
