Hundreds of blank checks, bank and telephone statements, Social Security card copies and ID copies were found in a dumpster by someone from a a neighboring store. The documents date from 2004 to 2009. The owner of the business said that the mistake occurred when some sensitive documents were sorted in with non-sensitive documents and dumped rather than shredded. It is unclear whether the sorting error was made by the shredding company or the business. Ninety-six of the documents were kept by the neighboring store's owner. He agreed to return the documents to their owners and destroy the ones he cannot return.
