Community Shred Day 2018
Community Shred Day
United Bank & Trust and the Marshalltown Area Chamber of Commerce announce the date of the upcoming annual Community Shred Day. This event will be held at United Bank & Trust, 2101 S. Center Street on Saturday, April 14th from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. in the bank’s parking lot. The public is invited to bring their confidential, personal information to the bank to be shredded by On-Site Information Destruction. This is offered at no cost; however, there is a 5-box limit.
The public will have the opportunity to dispose of documents containing personal information such as bank statements, tax records, canceled checks, pay stubs, medical records and other paperwork that may include personal data including account numbers or social security numbers. Properly destroying this type of information will help reduce the chance of identity theft occurring.
“It is so important to safely and securely dispose of confidential information. With the increase in fraud, data breaches and identity theft, consumers need to be diligent in protecting their personal data.” said Jennifer Hass, Marketing Officer at United Bank & Trust. “Shredding your documents will provide peace of mind knowing that your information won’t be obtained by a criminal for fraudulent use.” added Hass.
Tips on protecting your information and preventing identity theft and fraud can be obtained during the Shred Day event. The Federal Trade Commission has additional valuable information on their website at http://www.consumer.ftc.gov/topics/privacy-identity.
