Could Your Personal Information Become Parade Confetti, Shocking Report [VIDEO]
You are celebrating Thanksgiving at the Macy's Parade and the confetti that falls on your shoulder has phone numbers and social security numbers. Information about Mitt Romney's motorcade. Where did it come from?
That story happened to Ethan Finkelstein. "It landed on her shoulder," Finkelstein told PIX11 News, "and it says 'SSN' and it's written like a social security number, and we're like, 'That's really bizarre.'
The Nassau County Police Department told PIX11, via a written statement from its commanding officer for public information, Inspector Kenneth Lack, "The Nassau County Police Department is very concerned about this situation. We will be conducting an investigation into this matter as well as reviewing our procedures for the disposing of sensitive documents."
When the Macy's people were asked they showed the regular paper punches that they use for confetti, and added that the strips of paper that have the information came from another source.
