Want to know how much your neighbour owes on his credit card? Try the Companies Registration Office

Edited 21/2/11: The story behind this post has since been removed from the Sunday Business Post from its site and a clarification printed:
In an article published on February 13 under the headline "Debtors’ personal details posted online by debt collection firm", we said that Cash Flow Services (CFS) had made personal details of almost 1,100 credit card holders available on the internet, through the Companies Registration Office.

We have been asked to point out, and are happy to clarify, that neither CFS nor any party acting on its behalf listed the names or outstanding debts of MBNA customers in any documents filed in the Companies Registration Office, nor did CFS post any debtors’ personal details online.

The Sunday Business Post apologises to CFS and its directors for any misunderstanding or confusion caused.
