T-Mobile employees were notified early this week that they were at risk to identity theft. Their personal information was stored in a laptop stolen from employee’s checked luggage.

A laptop containing the Social Security numbers and other personal information of T-Mobile USA Inc. employees recently disappeared, putting as many as 43,000 current and former workers at risk of identity theft.

This incident is similar to other laptop thefts which has occurred over the year.
