With the tax-filing season behind us, we’re encouraging taxpayers to do a spring cleaning of their old financial documents and other records.
Safely shredding sensitive documents can help consumers prevent identity theft. National research shows someone’s identity is stolen every two seconds, and in Pennsylvania 14,030 identity theft complaints were filed in 2016 with the Federal Trade Commission.
Identity thieves routinely search through dumpsters and trash cans looking to find confidential information. AARP PA is looking to stop scams with an event that will allow consumers to dispose of this sensitive information in a safe and secure manner.”
