Potentially thousands of files contaning personal information was exposed after a San Francisco agency left confidential files in unsecured curbside garbage and recycling bins. In some cases entire case files were discarded. Blown up copies of social security cards, driver's licenses, passports, bank statements and other sensitive personal information were all left in these unlocked bins.
