GA: Confidential records found in Paulding Co. dumpster

WSBTV reports:

The FBI is investigating a dumpster full of medical documents that Channel 2’s Ross Cavitt found outside an office complex in Hiram.

Cavitt called authorities after finding the documents full of people’s sensitive identification and medical information. The caller who gave Cavitt the tip said the documents were in the dumpster all weekend. Someone also might have dumped other boxes in the past 48 hours, the caller said.

Cavitt didn’t have to dive in too far to find Social Security numbers, addresses, dates of birth and bank account information. There were also documents with private health information.


It appears the documents Cavitt found came from two separate medical offices in the Hiram complex, including an orthopedic office and Family Intervention Services, which deals with juvenile issues. Coincidentally, they had both just moved out.
