Nobody knew about the stolen info until the evidence was discovered accidentally and basically fell into their lap.

Somehow aindont think the new Olympic terrorism. Laws would have helped either.

I would be extremely worried if I was one of those whose data was stolen - who knows how widely that information was distributed in the criminal world? Who knows when a criminal group will decide to target you or your family? The customers should move and change their phone numbers etc., and charge it all to the bank.

I would.be very worried as well. If you have 100 million yen in liquid assets in a single bank account in Japan then you have other issues. Perhaps talk to a financial advisor is in order, age is not an excuse.

cwhite, 100 million yen is just $ 1 million and it's not much for wealthy Japanese peoples in Japan. What they worry about is targeted robbery. You have to worry when bad guys have your address, phone number and detail. The information of clients can be used for blackmailing or robbery purpose. Wealthy peoples have cash and precious items worth more than 100 million yen perhaps more than 1,000 million yen at home. There are many reasons for not deposit all the money they have in the bank.
