CA: “Embarrassing” Files Found Outside Blockbuster

Bob Hansen reports:

The Blockbuster store in Mission Valley was being cleaned out for the last time. The video store chain is in bankruptcy and one worker was finishing up at the store. That’s when privacy rights expert Beth Givens happened to walk by and she was shocked by what she found.

“A box called case files and then an open bin that contained some papers,” said Beth Givens with Privacy Rights Clearinghouse. Those papers were employee files, job applications complete with names, addresses and social security numbers.
