Every two seconds, someone's identity is stolen, but you can help protect yourself against fraud by shredding sensitive documents you no longer need, such as old tax returns, bank statements, credit card information or offers, health records, and employment forms--anything that contains your personal identifying information that thieves can use to steal your identity.
At AARP, we’re serious about wanting to help consumers fight identity theft! That’s why we’re teaming up once again with Fox 13 News and Shred-It to offer free shredding events, this time in both Midvale and Ogden on Saturday, July 15 from 8:00am–11:00am. This event is open to the public, regardless of age or AARP membership. Shredding sensitive financial documents and other materials that contain personal information will prevent thieves from using these data to open false accounts or lines of credit.
The AARP Fraud Watch Network brings fraud-fighting efforts to consumers nationwide in “ Operation: Stop Scams” -- a month-long series of events in communities coast-to-coast, as AARP state organizations sponsor more than 150 free local events in nearly every state and the District of Columbia from Friday, April 14, through Tuesday, May 16, 2017.
Mark your calendar for July 16, and join us to fight fraud and shred! AARP Utah is once again teaming up with Fox 13 News and Shred-it to offer two free shredding events! Both will occur on Saturday, July 16 from 8:00am--11:00am. The Salt Lake City area event will take place at 6925 Union Park Center parking lot in Midvale, UT 84047. In Ogden, find us at the Golden Spike Event Center, West Parking Lot, at 1000 North 1200 West, 84404.
AARP Utah is encouraging members to guard against identity theft by disposing of sensitive documents. Free shredding events are scheduled July 16, 8-11 a.m., in Ogden and the Midvale area of Salt Lake City.
