There have been many examples of companies carelessly leaving social security numbers out in the open and fraud being committed with these numbers. For example in 2012 the Federal Trade Commission settled in a court case with two check cashing and lending companies that carelessly threw away important documents, containing consumer information into unsecured dumpsters. Leaving them wide open to identity theft – which identity thieves jumped at the chance to get and stole hundreds of thousands of dollars with the information from this lack of document destruction.
