Description

People freely provide confidential information to financial institutions with the belief that information will be protected. WLKY wanted to find out it that was the case. Not only did the investigation discover confidential records of bank customers in the trash, it also found security codes of opening a bank in Southern Indian. Reporters found account numbers, loan applications, social security numbers, credit reports, and complete tax returns.
