Toledo Navy office compromises recruits’ identities
They thought their personal information would be safe in the hands of the U.S. Navy, but dozens of sailors who signed up at a Toledo recruiting station are about to learn that their personal information was compromised. Now, their families are not happy with the Navy.
The men volunteered to serve their country, but an NBC24 investigation finds that the Navy recruiting office in the Miracle Mile Shopping Center threw out thousands of personal documents from recruits without first shredding them. A crook’s treasure chest of ddresses, phone numbers, and even social security numbers were found in a dumpster behind the recruiting office.
