According to the Insurance Journal on April 19, 2007, the Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott has charged CVS Pharmacy for allegedly violating the state’s information destruction requirement.

A CVS store in Liberty, Texas exposed hundreds of its customers to identity theft by allegedly disposing of customer records in a dumpster behind the store. Those documents contained hundreds of active debit and credit card account numbers, along with expiration dates, reports the article. Investigators are still trying to determine whether any of the exposed data has been used illegally.

This news comes immediately on the heels of the same charges being brought by the Texas AG against RadioShack for casually discarding personal records.
