On November 1st, San Antonio, Texas TV station, KENS 5, posted a report of personal information found in the dumpster of a local loan office.

According to the report, the loan company quickly responded by removing the records once they were informed of the situation. The article also reports that the firm did not know exactly how the records ended up there, but speculated that it was due to employee error.

The article did not mention the fact that Texas is one of 14 states where disposing of personal information in this manner is a crime. Of all the states with such laws, Texas has been the most aggressive in enforcement.
