Valley restaurant dumps years worth of sensitive information in dumpster
“Last name Taylor, first name Gary, social security number 569…“
Tom Rezler is a business owner in this Tempe shopping center and can't believe what he recently found in nearby garbage dumpsters.
Thousands of pages of sensitive information apparently disposed of by a neighboring business called The Vine Tavern and Eatery.
“As a patron of the Vine and having used my credit card hundreds of times in there, I'm a little upset that my information is now privy to anyone that can find this stuff,” Rezler said.
The documents included people's names, social security numbers and dates of birth from restaurant applications.
There were checks with banking information and also credit card receipts from Vine customers, receipts that revealed a person's entire credit card number. azfamily
