Every 2 seconds someone’s identity is stolen. To help consumers protect themselves from ID theft, AARP Arkansas will host a free Fraud Watch Network shredding event Saturday, Oct. 28 in Little Rock.
Combating fraud is a priority for AARP Oklahoma, which represents approximately 400,000 members age 50-plus throughout Oklahoma. In a 2015 report, AARP found the total number of identity thefts, frauds and other consumer complaints in Oklahoma was 24,002. Identity thieves routinely search through dumpsters and trash cans, looking to find confidential information. One way to keep your identity safe is to shred documents containing personal information. This includes bank and credit card statements, tax forms, and medical bills.
