More Companies Throwing Away Customer Private Info
from the come-and-get-it dept
Identity thieves may want to go back to dumpster diving as a way of getting useful information. Just a week after Radio Shack was sued for throwing out all sorts of customer info (including credit card and social security numbers) where anyone walking by could just grab it out of the trash, telco Rogers Communication was found doing the exact same thing in Toronto. The company is blaming a sales company they had hired for dumping the content without considerations for customer privacy. You would think big companies like Radio Shack and Rogers would know better than to have such information even stored on paper like that, let alone to allow it to be thrown out in the trash.
