AARP Massachusetts staff and volunteers at a recent free shredding event.


All are invited to a free shredding event, brought to you by AARP Massachusetts!

According to the AARP Fraud Watch Network, shredding remains one of the best ways to safely dispose of no-longer-needed confidential documents — which is a powerful deterrent against ID (identity) theft. Our next shredding event takes place in Worcester on Saturday, Oct. 7, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., 2017. Complete details are below.


All shredding is done onsite by New England Security Shredders.

The website provides information about fraud and scams, prevention tips from experts, an interactive scam-tracking map, fun educational quizzes, and video presentations featuring Fraud Watch Network Ambassador Frank Abagnale. Users may sign up for “Watchdog Alert” emails that deliver breaking scam information, or call a free helpline at 877-908-3360 to speak with volunteers trained in fraud counseling.
