Shred Event

Many of us receive credit card offers in the mail and will manually tear them up before throwing out. Some of you are lucky enough to have a shredder at home. With tax season upon us, it’s a good time to re-visit best practices when dealing with your own sensitive data.

It’s so easy to steal someone’s identity. A few pieces of information from your Facebook page, your twitter timeline or your LinkedIn profile and most of your passwords are cracked.

In the physical realm, think about the piles of mail that you get everyday. We call it junk mail, identity thieves call it opportunity. Opportunity to take the credit card offer and open the card, in your name, for themselves. Opportunity to steal account information from your existing credit card bill, (Don’t fool yourself, the ‘hidden’ numbers will only deter the laziest if thieves. Sophisticated thieves will already know the beginning 4 digits because they are designated by your institution) Then there are all those years of tax documents with social security numbers send other personal identification. (Keep at LEAST 7years tax records, you never know WHEN the IRS might come knocking) It’s overwhelming to say the least!

Well LeMay has a solution for us! Shredding is a simple, effective way to protect yourself from identity fraud. ID theft costs Washington state residents nearly two billion dollars a year.

To make it even easier to shred, you can bring up to three grocery bags of your old documents to a FREE shredding party. Check out the list below for a location near you!
