CANCELLED-FREE Identity Theft Protection Advice & FREE On-Site Document Shredding

March 28 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Travis Credit Union in partnership with Data Safe, invites the community to a free community wellness event.  Residents are welcome to bring their documents for shredding (up to 3 boxes or bags), enjoy refreshments and also learn more about to avoid identity theft.

“Shredding sensitive paper documents is an important first step, but it doesn’t end there,” said Barry Nelson, president and CEO of Travis Credit Union.  “That’s why Travis Credit Union will also distribute important advice and simple steps everyone can take to prevent ID theft in their daily lives, both online and off.”

Last year alone, 16.7 million Americans became victims of ID theft, a record high compared to the previous year, according a report from Javelin Strategy and Research. The report notes that the majority (56 percent) of ID theft occurs when the thief had direct contact with the victim’s personal information, through a stolen or lost wallet, rifling through a personal mailbox or trashcan, or even lifting documents from inside a home or business.

“This is largely a crime of access,” added Nelson.  “Our goal here is to make personal information less accessible and empower people to be their own first line of defense against identity theft.”
