David Dright of West Chicago is in jail accused of 19 counts of identity theft. That might seem like a run of the mill news story but consider the identities he had, White Sox slugger Jim Thome, former Cubs outfielder Moises Alou and star Mets pitcher Pedro Martinez.
David allegedly plucked discarded--and unshredded--loan applications, tax returns and other private documents from a trash bin near the offices of SFX Baseball. SFX is an agent for professional baseball players including the ones listed.
If you are going to dumpster dive why not do so at an office that handles information for millionaires? Apparently the 10% that SFX earns from every contract signed was not enough to hire a shredding service to protect its clients.
