A box of job applications was thrown out by a new manager.  Someone found the applications and showed them to another person who then contacted some of the applicants.  Addresses, Social Security numbers, driver's license numbers, names, phone numbers and other information typical of an employment application were exposed.  Some of the applications also had questionable interview comments that seemed irrelevant to the selection process.

Anyone who peered inside the mixed paper bin at the Dupont Recycling Center in May of 2009 got an eyeful. Files, in plain sight, which contained sensitive medical and identity information. Authorities don't know how those thousands of files got there. Some of the records came from Hutcheson and a plastic surgery office in the area. The information inside those files included graphic photos, and Social Security numbers.
