Secure Your ID Day

Posted:

You may want to think twice about how you dispose of your personal documents.

Identity theft is one of the fastest growing crimes in the United States.

The Better Business Bureau and AARP are sponsoring "Secure Your ID Day" at Wells Fargo Bank in Bismarck.

This event gives the public the opportunity to bring in their personal, sensitive documents and have them shredded for free.

Identity theft is the number one complaint to the Federal Trade Commission every year.

Lyle Halvorson, Communications Director of AARP says it's important to always shred anything that has identifying information.

"If you have a bunch of documents and you try to run them through a personal shredder at home, you know, one sheet at a time or maybe even eight sheets at a time, I mean you're not going to get very far. So for people to be able to clean out their old files and bring boxes of documents here, they are really happy with the service and appreciate it," says Lyle Halvorson, Communications Director, AARP ND.

The next Secure Your ID Day will be in April.
