Southern Satellite Dumps Personal Information

March 2, 2009

It happens all the time–a company mishandles important information by throwing it away in a dumpster. One gentleman in Volusia County, Florida, found a box of folders from a company called Southern Satellite, which is a home satellite installation company. These folders contained names, address, credit cart information and social security numbers.

Officials are investigating, and the owner of Southern Satellite was not aware of the oversight in proper document destruction. When details are released, those affected may want to consider credit protection.
