AARP Georgia and Safe Kids Cobb County are collaborating during Earth Day to host this event to help community members protect their personal and financial assets. According to the Federal Trade Commission’s Consumer Sentinel Network, 3,083,379 total consumer complaints were collected in 2015. Florida, Georgia, and Michigan were the top three states for fraud and other complaints.

Every two seconds someone’s identity is stolen. But you can take steps to protect yourself. Fight back against fraud at the AARP Operation: Stop Scams shredding event on April 22 in Acworth.  Bring any confidential documents no longer needed and these items will be shredded permanently for free. Bring expired or damaged car seats for recycling also. The event is a part of The AARP Fraud Watch Network, a free resource to help you protect yourself and your family from identity theft and scams.
