AARP NY is sponsoring free shred events as part of “Operation: Stop Scams,” a series of free shredding events around the state, from Upstate to Long Island. From April to June, we are helping people fight back against fraud and help protect them from identity theft by shredding truckloads of sensitive personal documents.
In an age where technology like computers and smartphones are used for just about everything, cybercriminals are getting good at targeting vulnerable populations and gaining access to confidential information. It's important for you to learn how to avoid scams and take other steps in order to protect your privacy, and the privacy of your employees, clients, and loved ones.
There are several good reasons to shred confidential documents, but there aren’t always many opportunities to do so. Fortunately, AARP’s Fraud Watch Network will shred them for free!
Looking to liven up your home this summer? Re-pave the driveway or cut down that tree you’re afraid will get knocked down in a storm? Beware of scam artist contractors.
