Secure Information Left in the Open

Full story: WXIA Atlanta

It's unsettling -- scary, in fact. Hundreds of social security numbers and other personal information, sitting in a dumpster for anyone to find.

Since the 'information' was 'left in the open', it is not 'secure'. Most of these identities are probably not worth stealing anyway. It was a low end temp. agency, not a brokerage firm.

Interesting how the story changed. Before, it was reported that the police said they couldn't do anything with the files and that the guy who found them took them. Now it says the police took custody of the files...

OMG!!!!
I Agree they are day labor company right?
I have never heard of tem anyway but maybe this will teach everyone a lesson about how we should all take extra pre cautions!

I do not think anyone would go to jail b/c they assumed the files and there were no laws broken so just hope no one stole any of teh files before police got them, as far as the news geta life report something that is worth reporting!

Rock on dumpster divers!

Sounds like it's harmless, but would you want someone to get your information and open up a credit card account or take out a loan in your name. It could ruin you! Doesn't matter if the people were homeless people, we all would pay for what happens with their credit when it's not paid! It was very irresponsible of the agency to LEAVE the records to start with!!!!!!

I know for a fact Kimberly Singley's applicants are mostly illegal immigrants. It's 75% of her worker base. Kimberly allowed her staf memebers to use her own SS# number for the immigrants. That was the only way to enter them into the staffing companies system and be able to cut a check for them. Must have two forms of ID unless you have a passport. No civil suit will follow b/c of that. Kimberly also color coded her files by race. Blue files means African American, Orange files means Hispanic, all other color files Caucasian.It all has finally caught up to her. FINALLY.

I doubt she uses her own social security she is way too smart for that but are you jealous that she is putting people to work instead of letting people lay on their lazy ass...
Get a life baby girl?

Ok first let me say that myname is Kimberley Singley so lets get it right!!!
Not possible touse my socail nor would I give my informationto anyone I know how corrupt the world is.

We do not discriminate we eliminate and we are it is called organization with file folders, just look at an application it clearly ask what race you are so in order to apply for a job you must disclose this information! So you must be saying that applications is discrimination.

Please get your facts straight before you pass judgemnet, we are here to help find people a job, and with that we ask for two forms of id, as well as references and we check all of the following,before we place anyone to work as well do background check and drug screen, I mean we are to help not hurt.....

If you want the truth you will have to listen that is why God gave us two ears and only one mouth!
Also please note that the truth is that the files were discarded by the
leasing company not by us however they are our files that is why we took all the necessary steps to retrieve them and now we are in the process of getting them organized!

Including Juanita Harris's!
If you seek the truth you will find it!

All of the negative comments from "Babygirl" & "whomever" from Marietta obviously have a personal connection to Kimberley and are out to hurt her reputation. You people make me sick. Kimberley is one of the most caring, responsible people out there. She also does NOT practice hiring illegal aliens - maybe you're illegal or maybe you just worked for her and were fired - could it be you are disgruntled? Remember 1st of all, everyone makes mistakes and sometimes they are big mistakes - her only mistake was leaving the files there to later retrieve them. Inevitably, she is still responsible, but it was an honest mistake - the management company shouldn't have even been in there until after the weekend anyway. Also, people in glass houses should not throw stones. Last time I checked, Jesus was the only perfect one that walked this earth! Now, let's all try to be adults and worry about deliberate crimes out there that actually make a difference in our lives.

I know for a fact that Kimberly Singley had 10-15 ILLEGAL TEMPS at a company in McDonough, she gave this Company free labor for a day to try and win over the business, BTW, they were ALL hispanic with minimal english speaking skills!!!!!! So I would be certain these employees are paying TAXES! Right?

Oh and Kimberly Singley, doing business at mark ups that are so ridiculous you are quoting 25's and 28's, just ruins it for the entire market!!!!!!!!Do not tell me you are not using illegal labor! I would not pay labor minimum wage, you should be ashamed! Please let me know when you'd like to become a professional! Perhaps you should join Me at Corporate S.

Ok first of all GOD had nothing to do with this uncaring act. If you truly have GOD in your life why didn't you think about what GOD would have done in this situation. I believe you're a hypocrite. Please do not talk about something you know nothing about obviously. Just learn from this and if this not a lesson from GOD and just carma catching up with you. Please repent your sins now and mean it. Please do not disgrace Christians ever again.
