Insurance Records Discovered in Texas Dumpster

As reported by Rebecca Lopez in a posting to the website of Dallas, Texas-based WFAA-Channel 8 on June 13th, hundreds of files with people's names, Social Security numbers and policy numbers were found in a Richardson, Texas dumpster.

The files were dumped there by a company called Texas Insurance Claims Services which processes consumer claims. According to the report, the company says it sometimes uses commercial shredding services but decided not to do so this time.

Given Attorney General Greg Abbott’s aggressive defense of the state’s destruction law, it will not be surprising to be reading about a six figure settlement associated with Texas Insurance Claims Services in a few months.
