Protect your identity. Come to our shred event with your unwanted personal documents. This event is open to the public, all we ask, is a donation of at least 2 canned goods for our community food drive.
Identity theft occurs when someone uses your personally identifying information, like your name, Social Security number, or credit card number, without your permission, to commit fraud or other crimes.
The Federal Trade Commission estimates that as many as 10 million Americans have their identities stolen each year. In fact, you or someone you know may have experienced some form of identity theft. Identity theft is serious. People whose identities have been stolen can spend hundreds of dollars and dozens of hours cleaning up the mess thieves have made of their good name and credit record. Consumers victimized by identity theft may lose out on job opportunities, or be denied loans for education, housing, or cars because of negative information on their credit reports. They may even be arrested for crimes they did not commit. The potential for damage, loss, and stress is considerable.
Identity theft can happen to anyone at anytime. Reduce the chance of your personal ID theft by joining Mid Carolina at one of our Shred Events where you can destroy all personal documents and files.
In keeping with the credit union philosophy of people helping people, we'd like your help with our community food drive. As you bring your items to be shredded, we ask that you bring a donation of canned goods; all donations will go to the local food pantry and help those within the community.
Bring up to four boxes of items to be shredded.
Suggested items to shred:
- financial statements
- cancelled checks
- credit card statements and credit card pre-approval letters
- payroll stubs
- insurance forms
- old tax returns
- forms from doctor's offices
Shred Events are for Mid Carolina CU members and Kershaw & Richland County community residents. Shredding will be provided by Shred-It Ducument Management.
