Documents with Social Security numbers found in Albuquerque dumpster

KOAT reports:

It’s tax season, and that means a lot of sensitive information is getting printed on a lot of pieces of paper. Action 7 News found some of that paper just lying in an Albuquerque dumpster.

“I’m the one that put the stuff in there,” said Frank Shannon. “It’s 10 years old.”

That stuff is a stack of documents containing people’s personal information, including social security numbers. They were seen in a dumpster outside an Albuquerque tax preparation business by an Action 7 News viewer.
