Dear colleagues, as a new "service", Xoom unauthorizedly sent my private data (full name, phone number, amount of my phone bill) to a customer, offering them to pay my bills. When I questioned this breach of my privacy, they did not even apologize. I stopped using this service as this may compromise my customer relationships. Has anyone had a similar experience with this service? What action did you take?

Xoom and SEO Apr 20

Sorry to be going a bit off topic here, but I had never heard of "Xoom", so I Googled it, and found the most blatant case of SEO (search engine optimization) that I'd ever come across. The top two items on the Xoom page were not Xoom at all, but two rival money transfer organizations. I noticed that their Google listing began with a little green box containing the letters "Ad".
