Test Data In Production Leads To Legal Problems

Yabba-dabba-darn: Flintstones block sale of Ont. woman’s van:

Documents show fictional characters Fred Flintstone and his daughter, Pebbles, have taken out very real liens against a Perth, Ont. woman’s van.

. . . .

Documents obtained by CTV Toronto show Fred and Pebbles Flintstone listed as debtors claiming liens against Maureen’s vehicle. Their address is listed a 9 Yellow Brick Road, Markham, Ont.
The registering agent is listed as “PPSR Test Data1,” which suggests the lien may have been created as part of a Service Ontario system test. The documents also show other vehicle numbers under liens from the Flintstones, which could trigger more stone-age issues for other motorists.

On the other hand, the software was probably only wildly and not cancellingly over budget and just a couple years late. Incorrect data and legal battles of unknowing users of the software is a small price to pay!
