Though only loosely related to MF Global - I'm trying to erase that ugly situation from my mind just as they have erased my money -- Stratfor (an internet "security" company - LOL) was apparently holding customer credit card numbers and personal data totally unencryted on an Internet server!
Ok so you're saying - no one could be that careless with customers identities - esp not a security company.
Thousands of companies have been put on alert for cybercrime after hackers stole personal data and credit card details held by a US security company, and threatened to make public the client list of at least one other organisation this week.
British companies including BT, BAE Systems, Barclays and HSBC were among the organisations whose details were leaked to the internet, alongside organisations such as Apple, Microsoft, Coca-Cola and Google. "
"I was stunned to read that credit card numbers were stored in clear text on Stratfor’s servers. "
I think a very real threat to your money and it being stolen from is from organization that can't even bother to encrypt your info.
Hopefully the FBI will put these exec in jail and take the homes and money for "criminal neglect" - LOL
(IMHO Putting your credit card info on the net opens you to joing the thousands whose lives have been destroyed by identity theft.)

I need to file a claim form with the trustee to get my cash back.
Is anyone else also filing?
I had one open position and it and some of the funds were rolled over to a new futures trading firm.
I find the form very confusing and the questions hard to decode.
Looking for a little help who is better at understanding it than I am.
