Fight Fraud – Shred Instead

Stop fraud graphic

Every day, millions of Americans lose their hard-earned money to identity theft and other types of scams.  Last year alone, 12.6 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 shred-a-thons at four bank locations in the Granite State:

Saturday, April 18:  Manchester
9:00 am to 12:00 noon
705 Hooksett Road

Saturday, April 18:  Laconia
9:00 am to 12:00 noon
62 Pleasant Street

Saturday, April 25:  Concord
9:00 am to 12:00 noon
167 North Main Street

Saturday, April 25, 2015:  Littleton
9:00 am to 12:00 noon
125 Main Street

Bring your boxes or bags of documents – bank statements, cancelled checks, credit card junk mail, receipts with identifying information, to name a few – for shredding.  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.  As an added bonus, AARP New Hampshire volunteer fraud fighters will be there to talk about ways to keep safe from the con artists and share a wealth of information.
