NY: Documents found in mall parking lot

WABC reports:


The confidential papers were found by a man at the Palisades Mall in Rockland County. To make it worse, and what really got the man angry, is that no one at the mall seemed interested in taking those documents back.


The applications are for a clothing store named Metropark, a Los Angeles-based chain. The paperwork asks for the applicant’s social security number, past employment history and detailed contact information. On many, a second form asks for birthday and even driver’s license number. Most of the applicants are in their late teens or early 20s. A credit expert says young people are even more at risk of identity theft.


Metropark had no comment other than to say the matter is under investigation.
