FL: Trash scattered all over road contained SSN and medical records

Rachel Polansky reports:

Trash scattered on the side of a major road in Lehigh Acres turns out to be information that could have ruined a woman’s life.

The NBC2 Investigators went to check out the situation after your tips came into the newsroom.

The tip came in as trash scattered on the side of the road near the busy intersection of State Road 82 and Sunshine Boulevard. There were account numbers, routing numbers, emails, and medical reports all over the road.

Read more on NBC-2.  And no, they haven’t figured out how this happened.  Yet.

Do you recycle your papers with personal info or do you actually shred them first?
