According to a 2018 Shred-it Fraud Awareness Week Survey, nearly 30% of consumers do not shred paper or physical documents containing sensitive information before throwing them away.
With identify fraud on the rise and now effecting 16.7 million U.S. consumers, securely destroying documents that contain personal information is one of the best ways consumers can protect themselves from would-be identity thieves.
Pioneer Trust Bank invites community members to “Shred & Bank Responsibly” by dropping off their food donation and their paper documents. There is a 10-box limit on shredding documents, which will be securely destroyed and recycled by an onsite mobile shredding truck. The Community Shred Event is taking place Saturday, Oct. 26 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Pioneer Trust Bank Medical Center Branch located at 1190 Oak Street SE in Salem.
