CBS47 On Your Side is proud to be a sponsor of another free Better Business Bureau Shred It and Forget it event, Saturday, April 20th at Bullard High school in Fresno.
Identity theft is the fastest growing crime in the U.S. According to a recent study released by the Better Business Bureau over 8.4 million people became a victim of identity theft in 2006. In that same year the economic loss was a staggering 49.3 billion dollars!
Fortunately, while not completely preventable, you can take steps to protect yourself.
Shred It & Forget It is an event held to give residents and small businesses an opportunity to dispose of their unwanted personal financial/confidential documents for free.
The free shredding services are provided by BBB accredited businesses, which will have a mobile shredding truck on location to destroy all the sensitive material.
The next free Shred It & Forget It event is 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 20th at Bullard High School, located at 5445 N Palm Avenue in Fresno.
Residents can bring two boxes of documents to be shredded for free. Additional boxes are $3 donation. Bullard High School benefits from all proceeds.
