Business Shredding and Your Legal Responsibility:
The Fair & Accurate Credit Transaction Act (FACTA) was designed to reduce the risk of consumer fraud and identity theft created by improper disposal of consumer information. According to the FTC’s FACTA DISPOSAL RULE, ‘Any person who maintains or otherwise possesses consumer information for a business purpose” must properly destroy discarded consumer information. This law applies to essentially every person, and business in Houston with potentially severe penalties awaiting violators!
Recently, the Attorney General of Texas filed charges against a nearby medical facility for discarding patient information without destroying it first. According to reports they supplied, the fines could reach over $1 million. (Reported by Lubbock Avalanche-Journal, January 11, 2008). Don’t let your Houston business be the next to be fined!
