Better Business Bureau Will Sponsor Shred Day
The Central Virginia Better Business Bureau will be shredding sensitive documents as part of National Protect Your Identity Week.
That’s the week of the 17th of October.
Gallagher: This is a day for us to get the information or the materials that are around our house, get it out of there, bring it by the BBB office and we will get it shredded for you and destroyed.
BBB President Tom Gallagher.
Gallagher: We must take care to get rid of our old bank statements, our credit card bills, because they are money in the con man's hands and in the crook’s hands.
Anyone, including small businesses, is welcome to come to BBB offices at 720 Moorefield Park Drive, off Midlothian, on Saturday the 23rd from 9 until noon.
Gallagher: And we'll be able to take papers and CDs and floppy discs to help to prevent identity theft.
