A report posted to the website of Orlando’s ABC-affiliate WFTV on November 25, 2007 states that, acting on an anonymous tip, its investigators discovered dozens of confidential medical records that had been tossed out next to a dumpster in a local strip mall parking lot.

Inside the box were files containing patient's social security numbers, addresses and prescription information. The files were turned over to the Casselberry police.

According to the report, the doctor from whose office the material were discarded told reporters he knew nothing about it. He did say, however, that he would contact each patient to explain.
