Dear PoPville – Visa Agency Leaves Personal Info by Dumpster by in Adams Morgan

Dear PoPville,

I wanted to let you know about an issue I discovered this morning. While walking in the alley from my car to my office, I noticed some boxes by the dumpster. What caught my attention were some official looking documents. I flipped through and found visa and passport forms will people’s personal information, including social security numbers! There was even someone’s birth certificate (visible below) just sitting on top! I called the police to let them know about the issue, as well as the Department of State’s Office of the Inspector General. I showed the officer what I had discovered, and then he went to the company’s office on 18th Street, NW. Shortly thereafter, I saw him taking all of the boxes back into the offending company’s office. When he left, he told me that “an assistant accidentally took out the wrong boxes”.
