Thousands of documents with sensitive information were found in a publicly accessible dumpster. An investigation began on February 20 when officers were alerted to three dumpsters filled with documents dating back to 2005.  The information included Social Security numbers, driver's licenses, phone numbers, and addresses. The landlord of the space leased by Mo' Money appears to have mistakenly cleaned out the office space before Mo' Money's shredding service could access the documents. The IRS is now conducting a federal investigation related to identity theft.
