Fight Fraud – Shred Instead

Graphic from postcard

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 five bank locations in the Granite State.
