A story posted by Evan Francen on January 28th to BreachBlog.com reports that sensitive personal information belonging to Seattle-based, Visa Services Northwest customers was found on documents discarded in a dumpster located in a downtown Seattle alley. It is reported that the company has been discarding sensitive materials in this manner for "the last ten years".

The story was also reported in a broadcast news investigative piece by Seattle-based TV station KOMO.

While the owner of the service states it was an isolated incident, the report and blog entry claim that it is the company’s standard operating procedure.
