When they said they notified you they meant they walked outside and yelled your name once. Much cheaper than sending out a letter.

Or like the Alliant CU member meeting where the majority or whatever voted to boot MO-depositing members.

I thought you were joking. Then I went to the MGM site expecting to at least see some sort of link to something like “About that data breach…” – Nothing. Not only that, there is neither a way to close your account or even to contact them.

Did Arne Sorenson move to MGM?

What does MGM sell that they would 10 million+ customers? I have MGM films on disc but I’ve never bought anything directly from MGM.

MGM is a Casino and Hotel Chain. They have loyalty members, restaurants, shows, and much more. You can google these sort of things.

Know a person that works for the MGM (IT) and she didn’t know about this until yesterday, this happened back in the summer 2019 so don’t feel back, MGM told few about this 🙁

Financial data, passwords or passport numbers were “NOT??” compromised.

Statement… From the article:
“Last summer, we discovered unauthorized access to a cloud server that contained a limited amount of information for certain previous guests of MGM Resorts,” MGM told ZDNet.
“We are confident that no financial, payment card or password data was involved in this matter.”

Their being ‘confident’ doesn’t really inspire much faith on my part but there is no other mention of anything other than personal data in that article so this post is very misleading unless there are other unlisted sources.

Lol yeah, up until they found out about the breach they were confident they hadn’t been breached so their confidence thus far is negatively correlated with results

As long as I can match Hyatt, I don’t care, only name is genuine.

Oh how terribly sad for my ex husband who loves to gamble at MGM properties. I’ll just text him this post to ruin his Saturday. 🙂 Of course his data was already lost twice by Target a few years ago so he knows the drill.
