Every day, millions of Americans lose their hard-earned money to identity theft and other types of scams.  Last year alone, 13.1 million Americans were victims of identity theft.  That’s one person victimized every two seconds!

Protecting your personal information can help reduce your risk of identity theft.  One way to do this is to dispose of your personal information securely.  That is why AARP New Hampshire and Bank of New Hampshire  have teamed up to offer five shred-a-thons at these bank locations in the Granite State.

Bring your documents for shredding – bank statements, cancelled checks, credit card junk mail, receipts with identifying information.  Limit:  3 bags or boxes per person.  No magazines or newspapers will be accepted.  Documents should be free of large binder clips; staples and paper clips don’t need to be removed.  All papers will be shredded on-site in the mobile shredding truck.

These shred-a-thons are free and open to the public.
