Video: USPS Personnel Files Litter Street Near Burnt Out Postal Facility in Ohio

Whitehall (Rob Wells) – A Whitehall woman says she was cleaning up debris that blew into her yard New Year’s Day from a burned out postal facility when she did a double take at what she found.

Jackie Gray said debris and rubble from the Whitehall Postal processing plant has been blowing through her neighborhood since the office went up in flames in December.

Gray said documents she found contained what appears to be the names, addresses and social security numbers from personnel files of U-S Postal Employees.

Gray said the driveway between her home and the burned out post office contained several charred metal filing cabinets until a scrap collector hauled them away.

Now, she’s worried that employee information may’ve been stored in those cabinets.

    The form shown in the picture is a leave request, and while it might have a phone number there’s nothing on it that could be considered sensitive information. Current forms don’t contain SSN’s, as the USPS issued a made up “EID” number to all employees to stop exposing SSN’s. That’s not to say there might not be a decades old form with a SSN on it blowing around, as some of our people are real pack rats… 🙂

    Where I work there are files of I oLD records with SS numbers on them.

    I’m pretty sure that as recently as 2001 3971’s still requested ss #’s.
