AARP AARP States Arkansas Scams & Fraud

Join AARP AR Oct. 28 for free Shred Fest in Little Rock

VERY latest shredfest logo

Every 2 seconds someone’s identity is stolen. To help consumers protect themselves from ID theft, AARP Arkansas will host a free Fraud Watch Network shredding event Saturday, Oct. 28 in Little Rock.

AARP will partner with a local shredding provider to take any confidential documents you no longer need and shred them at no charge.

Shredding will be done on-site, which is the most secure way to shred. Plus all material is 100 percent recycled. In 2 or 3 weeks, shredded documents will become paper towels, napkins or bathroom tissue.

Instead of a charge for shredding, AARP suggests a donation of non-perishable food.
