AVOID IDENTITY FRAUD – Get shredding!
Identity fraud is a risk to all of us, both as individuals and as businesses, simply because we deal with so many pieces of information on a daily basis. To criminals, a discarded bank statement or photocopy of a passport could be enough to allow them to start building up a picture of you, your customers or your business and eventually can lead to them stealing your identity.
What to Shred:
It’s not difficult to determine what you should shred. Essentially, any paper document, expired credit card or CD/DVD containing personal, company or financial details should be shredded prior to disposal. Experts agree that one of the best ways to keep your identity safe is to shred all paper waste with personal information before you put it in the bin.
