New shredding laws aren't followed

Stop the presses! Stop the presses!

Apparently some companies are following privacy laws. I'm shocked.

I wonder how many of the companies impugned in this article are even aware of the new mandatory shredding rules?

KRISTV.COM - Corpus Christi, TX - New shredding laws aren't followed:

"CORPUS CHRISTI-- A new federal law is now helping to protect consumers from identity theft. It requires businesses and individuals using consumer credit reports to either shred or burn the information that's obtained from them. The disposal rule went into affect this month, but some people still aren't complying. The new law protecting personal information was created in hopes of reducing the rising number of identity theft cases. The disposal rule makes it a crime for businesses to simply toss out your credit report, without shredding or burning it...."
