Paper Shredders For Home And Office Use
Looking for personal privacy you need to shred
I was looking to purchase new paper shredders and wanted on the would insure my privacy. I am one of those people you hear about in the commercial that has had their identity stolen. It got by me for over 9 months and by the time I discovered it had been stolen the damage had been done to my credit rating as well as my good name. Someone had opened new charge accounts in my name and named themselves as a co-signer. They charged clothing, furniture, and thousand of dollars of merchandise using my name.
Well after numerous calls, letters, and contacting the local authority to file a stolen identity crime, I felt violated. I was determined never to let this happen to me again. I now feel obliged to shred anything that has anything to do with my name or credit. You know those things you get in the mail offering credit. Maybe you didn't realize that in the wrong hands you too may be the victim of identity theft.
My suggestion is to shred them and keep them out of the hand of criminals. It took me almost 6 months to get my problems from this incident resolved. I not have my credit report flagged so only those individual that have my permission to see my credit report are allowed to do so. Protect yourself by simply shredding everything that might get into the wrong hand including old credit cards.
