Revenue loses 25 million personal records

As widely reported, “Alistair Darling told the House of Commons this afternoon that a police investigation has been launched into how Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs has lost child benefit records relating to 25 million people” (ref: The Register).

But, it looks like someone already has placed an advert on ebay for those “missing” Child Benefit CD’s. (Nope, its not real).
