FL: Former charter school employees trying to avoid identity theft after sensitive documents left in dumpster

Amanda Ober reports:

A day after learning their sensitive information was carelessly tossed into a dumpster and then strewn about a busy road, people drove to DeLand in hopes of avoiding becoming the victim of identity theft.

Papers containing the Social Security numbers and tax returns of school employees in DeLand were tossed into a dumpster without being shredded and the sensitive information has now been exposed. WESH 2 News Reporter Matt Grant has the story.


The charter schools the paperwork belonged to were Heritage Academy and Boston Ave Charter which both lost their licenses in 2012 and 2013 for failing to meet education requirements.
