GA: Confidential paperwork found after theft
Rachel Stockman reports:
Confidential customer information from a car dealership was potentially compromised after a theft.
Delores Carston showed Channel 2 Action News file after file of confidential customer information, including her own, that she says somehow ended up on the street.
A man found the paperwork and called her.
“This is personal information, this my Social Security, this my date of birth, residence, my paycheck, I mean everything you could possibly think of about me,“ Carston said.
When Channel 2 Action News looked over the files, we noticed there appears to be customer information collected by Atlanta Toyota on Pleasant Hill Road in Duluth, but the paperwork was found miles away, in Snellville.

The dealership’s statement says that they tried to get her to return the files to them, but she didn’t and that therefore, they are initiating a court action to recover control of the documents so they can notify customers. They also say that the incident occurred because an employee violated policy and removed the files from their premises, after which it was stolen from the employee’s car.
