PLANO, Texas (AP) -- Personal information on about 650,000 customers of J.C. Penney and up to 100 other retailers could be compromised after a computer tape went missing.

 

GE Money, which handles credit card operations for Penney (JCP, Fortune 500) and many other retailers, said Thursday night that the missing information includes Social Security numbers for about 150,000 people.
