Shredding events are part of AARP’s fraud prevention efforts. Identity theft and imposter scams make up about 40% of Vermont's reported scams. “We want to help people stay one step ahead of scammers and identity theft,” says Laura McDonough, AARP Vermont associate state director of communication. "These free document shredding events are a way to protect Vermonters from those scams happening around the state."
