Privacy violated by Lahey junk mail
Over the past few months, I have received several letters from the Lahey Foundation soliciting donations. These letters have been sent to my street address, which is not the address I use for mail. I have never used any medical facility in the United States. I have e-mailed the foundation to ask how it obtained my personal information, but have not received a reply.
I understand from the Government Post Office that numerous other people have received these letters, and that I am not alone in wondering how the addresses were obtained.
My fear is that some organisation in Bermuda has been passing on confidential information to Lahey. Is it legal to do this without my knowledge and permission?
