Free consumer shredding event in Delaware this weekend

Protect your identity and important financial information!

Free on-site document shredding will be offered this weekend. Consumers may bring up to three file-sized boxes of documents, which may contain paper file folders, staples, and paperclips; emptied boxes will be returned immediately to consumers.

Also, Attorney General Beau Biden’s Consumer Protection Unit staff will provide information and answer questions about consumer frauds and scams.

Nationally, identify theft is the most common fraud reported to federal consumer agencies. In 2012, a record 369,000 reports of identity theft were made to the Federal Trade Commission, an increase of 30% from the year before. Shredding bank statements, bills, and other documents that contain consumers’ information is an effective measure Delawareans can employ to help prevent ID theft.

Here’s where the event will be:

Saturday, September 21

9 am to 1 pm

Lowe’s/BJ’s parking lot

Peninsula Crossing Shopping Center, Route 113, Millsboro
