Apparently, someone in Boscov's customer service department is running credit checks for people outside of the company. She is running checks just to determine what cards people have. She is given someone's social security numbers and birth dates and then running the report. These are people that have not applied for a store credit card. These customer service representatives need to be told that it is quite ILLEGAL to run someone's credit report without their permission and for the intent of collecting information for an outside source. That it could be punishable by law and that they will probably also be terminated as well!

    The Customer Call Center in Laureldale, Pa, is running credit checks without any type of authorization, verbal or written. Apparently, there are a few people running these checks for outside people to check others credit. They are giving out highly confidential information to outside sources. They are running credit checks for people who have not applied for the store credit card and do not need any type of prescreening what so ever. What one particular person is doing is highly illegal and could be punishable by law as well as being terminated by the company. I hope this matter is given high importance because I, for one, would not like my credit checked by these few individuals.
