Dear Palestinian Bomber

Aug 25, 2005

In today’s “direct mail databases are broken” category, the Huffington Post has a short piece titled “California Man Receives Credit Card Offer Addressed to ‘Palestinian Bomber’”  Of course, the person who received this (Sami Habbas) has been a US citizen since the age of 3 and served in the US Army.  When he called JP Morgan Chase about it, he was greeted with “Yes, Mr. Bomber, what can we do for you?”  I guess the call center “judgment filter” is broken also.
