YouTube Video Reveals Customer Personal Info In JPMorgan Chase’s Dumpsters

Apr 30th, 2007 | By | Category: Citizen Media, Internet TV, Strange

A new Internet video shows dumpster-diving activists digging into trash bags from a New York JPMorgan Chase bank and finding individuals’ social security numbers, bank account balances and other sensitive information. The information, found on the street in Chinatown, Queens, the Upper East Side, and in two Brooklyn locations, could be used to steal customers’ identities.

The YouTube clip is a great use of Internet video to focus attention on a company’s business practices:

“Identity theft is one of the nation’s fastest growing crimes that wreak havoc on the lives of unsuspecting victims,” said New York City Council Member and Consumer Affairs Committee Member, Charles Barron. “I plan to work with my colleagues to coordinate hearings or any other measures that will protect the victims of identity theft.”
