MESA, Ariz. -- DISH Network is investigating after numerous customer documents were reportedly found in a Mesa trash bin.

A 3TV viewer reported finding pay stubs and order forms containing personal information of hundreds of DISH customers from across the country.

The documents appear to be from a contractor working with the satellite TV provider.

3TV called some of the customers, who were shocked and angry to hear their sensitive information was exposed.

DISH told 3TV, "We are investigating this matter. DISH takes our customers' privacy seriously, and has established policies and procedures to protect customer information."

Police have been notified.
