In the era of identity theft, it's more important than ever to be mindful of which documents you throw in the trash.

Every two second’s someone’s identity is stolen.  Last year, 16.7 million Americans were victimized by identity fraud. Shredding sensitive documents that you no longer need is one way to protect yourself, and the AARP  Fraud Watch Network  is here to help you make that happen.
Shredding Bucket
Tax season is a good time to get rid of unwanted documents to keep scammers from stealing your identity and money. AARP Louisiana offers two free shredding events next month.

Every 2 seconds, someone's identity is stolen, and vigilance and awareness is key to protecting yourself. That's why AARP is hosting two telephone town hall meetings on Thursday, February 28 to share information about government impostor scams (i.e. you get a text, call, or email from someone who says they’re with the government); the warning signs, how to protect yourself and where to go for help or additional information.
