Shredding activities offer residents an easy, free way to get rid of confidential materials. Experts recommend shredding old documents with personal info; unused checks, credit card receipts, unneeded medical bills, expired ID cards, and pre-approved credit card applications. AARP Georgia and Age-Friendly Macon-Bibb are sponsoring a free Shred Fest on Saturday, December 3, 2016, 10am – 2pm.
AARP Connecticut, EnviroShred and the Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection will provide residents who missed the Shred Fest event in Hartford on Sunday, April 24, with an additional opportunity to securely dispose of their personal financial and sensitive documents for free.
¿Alguna vez te han robado la identidad o la de alguien que conoces? Cada dos segundos, a alguien le roban la identidad. Son 30 robos cada minuto, 300 cada 10 minutos, 900 cada media hora... así que ocurre con frecuencia y le puede ocurrir a cualquier persona.
Have you, or someone you know, had their identity stolen? Someone’s identity is stolen every two seconds. That’s 30 every minute, 300 every 10 minutes, 900 every half hour… so it happens often, and can happen to anyone.
Shred Fest is a free event sponsored by AARP's Fraud Watch Network for individuals who want to safely discard personal information so that they can protect themselves from identity theft. This local event is one of dozens scheduled nationwide to provide secure document destruction.
