Description

The investigative team looked into a form of identity theft, called "dumpster diving." This means, criminals can get everything they need to steal your identity by digging through your trash. The "Target-8" Team got permission by an area landlord to go dumpster diving, and found materials to steal someone's identity. When they took this information to city officials, they said it was completely legal. It's not a crime to dig through trash. It's unlawful to use materials from trash in an unlawful way.
