Bank Docs Found in Trash Are Legit

JPMorgan Chase has confirmed that the papers pulled from its trash cans by Service Employees International Union representatives are legitimate bank documents.

The documents, taken from the trash by the SEIU, included loan applications and other documents containing confidential information such as names, Social Security numbers, bank transactional histories and phone numbers.

According to a spokesperson for the bank, the SEIU is in a dispute with JPMorgan Chase over its hiring of vendors to provide cleaning and guard services. The union posted a video on YouTube that shows an unidentified man pulling documents from a trash can earlier this week.
