Identity Theft: It Could Happen To You
Wednesday, January 4, 2017

In a single year, nearly three million Americans will have their identities stolen. 

 

If you think you would never be a target for identity theft, you are mistaken. Victims span every age, race, location, and income level.  Fraud can happen from stolen personal information, the misuse of a credit card or a bank account. 

 

The average person will lose $5,000 and countless hours trying to recover.

 

How can I prevent identity theft?

 

·      Change passwords frequently.  Avoid using passwords that are very similar, like “password1” and “password2.”

 

·      Utilize a credit monitoring service.  Many credit cards offer these services for free.

 

·      Review your credit card statements.  It’s easy to simply pay a bill, especially if it comes electronically, but keeping a close eye on your purchases will help you identify anything out of the ordinary.

 

·      Shred mail and sensitive documents.  Bank and credit card statements, voided checks, and anything with personal information should not just be thrown away.

 

If you suspect you’ve been a victim of identity theft, immediately report it to your bank, credit card companies, and the credit reporting agencies.  They will help you to freeze your accounts and limit the damage.

 

Document Destruction is here to help you take the first step towards identity theft prevention.  Contact us today and we will come to your home or office and shred your sensitive documents.  Our services are performed on site, so you will have peace of mind knowing your information is secure.

A WORD FROM THE OWNER & OPERATOR

MIKE CALLIHAN

"Four Reasons To Use Document Destruction"

Don't get us wrong, using your own paper shredder is better than nothing, but organizations
that implement internal shredding programs are not being as frugal or as secure as they think they are.

   1. We shred your documents on-site in front of your eyes into confetti.

   2. Document Destruction is NAID CERTIFIED & ACCREDITED for
       document shredding. Document Destruction is audited annually to
       verify that every employee is uniformed, bonded, I.D. badged,
       drug tested, criminally background checked and is fully trained in
       the latest security measures.

   3. In addition to general liability insurance, Document Destruction has
       PROFESSIONAL LIABILITY COVERAGE to protect you against the following:
         • Unauthorized access to or theft of sensitive documents
         • Intentional acts by my employees
         • Negotiable instruments falling into the wrong hands
         • Identity theft stemming from information on sensitive documents
         • Violations of privacy, i.e. involving medical records

   4.  Since starting Document Destruction in 2004, we have NEVER had a
        security breach or had a client's private & confidential documents fall
        into the wrong hands. Secure document destruction is vital to a company's
        survival. This includes trade secrets, customer lists, employee records and
        records that need to be protected as required by federal law. I am personally
        committed to helping protect your firm's information and guarantee that they
        are safe and will never see the light of day.
