Residents are invited to safely dispose of sensitive and personal documents to further protect themselves from identity theft and fraud. Nearly 25% of all complaints to the FTC are related to identity theft. Of those, more than half are persons aged 50+. In 2009, the dollar amount stolen was $21 billion, equating to 1 incident of identity fraud every few seconds. Protect yourself and your identity. Visit the senior center June 22nd from 10-1pm to speak to DA Morrissey’s staff and shred personal documents safely and free of charge. Experts suggest shredding all unneeded paperwork that contains personal information, including date of birth, address, social security number, credit card numbers, medical information, account statements, expired identification (i.e., passport, license, etc.), banking information, canceled checks, junk mail, tax documents, etc. Computer hard drives also accepted. The mobile shredding truck is equipped with a screen to watch the shredding. Light refreshments will be served at an identity theft presentation at 10am if you are interested in attending.
