A local news team was alerted to a group of scattered documents near a lake and an interstate.  Most of the documents were labeled with an "Eaton Group" stamp.  The owner of the law group and collection service was not sure how the documents came to be exposed rather than properly disposed of.  The court case documents exposed names, Social Security numbers, addresses, bank statements, bank account numbers, Mastercard account numbers, and other sensitive information.
