Confidential client data stolen from firm
by Nick Delgado
Guam - Advisors Unlimited controls at least $25 million in assets for their 1,000 clients. And according to company president Frank Salas, their Hagatna office was burglarized on September 11. Salas says several miscellaneous items were stolen, but the most important was an external hard drive containing confidential client information including financial and personal data.
The company is currently working with clients to protect them from being victims of identity theft. He's advising his clients to contact their banks and credit card providers to inform them of the situation and have them place a fraudulent alert to prevent any possible misuse of their account. The incident has been reported to the Guam Police Department as well as the FBI.
Salas believes the burglary occurred Saturday between 7:30 and 9pm. If you have any information you're urged to call Guam Crimestoppers at 477-HELP (4357).
