Identity theft is the fastest growing crime in America. The Federal Trade Commission has advice for all consumers to follow because protecting your personal information can help reduce your risk of identity theft. There are four main ways to do it: know who you share information with; store and dispose of your personal information securely, especially your Social Security number; ask questions before deciding to share your personal information; and maintain appropriate security on your computers and other electronic devices.
WCCU’s free shredding events are a way to help members securely and safely dispose of any documents containing personal information that may lead to identity theft.
