Shred your documents!

In 1988 the Supreme Court ruled that all trash is public domain. The impact has been felt ever since.

Shredding is more than just getting rid of papers and documents. It’s a main vehicle in the protection against the fastest growing fraud-identity theft. In 2006, there were 67,000 recorded victims. In 2010, 13 million people were negatively impacted. One of the solutions is that thieves can’t steal what they can’t read.

  • Destroy “pre-approved” credit card applications
