Free Shred Events - Protect Yourself from Identity Thieves with Some Spring Cleaning

Posted by Jenny at 3/20/2014 9:00:30 AM

Daffodils and green grass are hidden under the blanket of snow covering most of the Northeast but that doesn’t mean that spring isn't right around the corner. Many of you are probably already getting the spring itch to kick and cure the cabin fever which usually starts with a list of things to do around the house - like cleaning out your filing cabinet, basement, or office.

Many people worry more about thieves stealing their information online but Americans have to be just as worried about paper trails and dumpster divers. Buying a shredder is a great way to protect yourself from scavengers but it might feel like a daunting task when you consider all of the files and paperwork you’ll be purging during your spring cleaning. If that's the case, consider stopping by one of SEFCU’s free Shred Days.
