Account information of some Burnet residents exposed through water billing
April 12, 2013, 5:25 pm by Alexandria Randolph
The names and bank account numbers of some Burnet utility users were sent out with city bills earlier this week, and city officials only became aware of the mistake about noon Friday.
City officials said that the mailing of sensitive information was inadvertent, and all affected banks have already been contacted. However, customers who have bank drafts with the city are encouraged to notify their banks immediately and to monitor their accounts for any suspicious activity.
"The bills were mailed out on or before April 10, and there were about 250 customers who were effected,” said Burnet City Manager David Vaughn. "It was mostly Wells Fargo and First State Bank that were effected.”
