Better Business Bureau of Upstate New York (BBB) shred day is this Saturday, October 8, 2016.
In 2015, 13.1 million Americans reported being a victim of identity fraud at the cost of $15 billion.
Did you know every two seconds someone steals an identity? BBB says the first rule of protection is if you don’t need it you should shred it – responsibly.
BBB of Upstate New York along with Tops Friendly Markets, Shred-It, and AT&T are hosting Secure Your ID Day on Saturday, October 8, 2016, from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. across Upstate New York (Western New York, Rochester, and Central New York).
The community can bring up to three boxes or bags of old papers for on-site shredding. BBB and AT&T volunteers will give out safety tips.
