Are you afraid that you may someday become a victim of Identity Theft? This occurs when a thief obtains and uses someone’s personal information to open new accounts and apply for loans in the victims’ name.
Fremont Federal Credit Union wants to make sure you’re not putting yourself at risk. One of the most common methods thieves use to obtain personal information is by searching through someone’s trash.
What is in your trash? Do you discard old financial statements that contain account numbers or your social security number? If so, you may be putting yourself at risk. Throwing away documents with personal information may increase your risk for Identity Theft.
Because the safest way to discard documents is to shred them, Fremont Federal Credit Union holds Shred for Safety Days each spring and fall.
Our spring Shred for Safety Day is held in April at our Woodville Office, and the fall one is scheduled in October each year at one of our Fremont offices.
Our next Shred Day is scheduled for Thursday, October 17, 2013 from 4:00 – 6:00 p.m. at our West Branch Office, located at 2374 W. State St. in Fremont. See you there!
