BANGOR: AARP Maine is hosting their third shredding event of the year on Tuesday, June 23rd from 10AM to 2PM at Sam’s Club in Bangor. This event offers the opportunity to safely dispose of sensitive and personal documents to minimize the risk of becoming a victim of identity theft.

Participants can bring any outdated bank statements, canceled checks, credit card junk mail and receipts with identifying information. There is no need to remove staples or paperclips, but the following will not be accepted: electronics, plastic of any kind, binder clips or plastic binders. A shredding truck from Records Management Center will be on-site to shred documents on the premises.

Identity theft tops the list of types of fraud Mainers 50-plus worry about, followed by credit card theft and Internet fraud.
