'Secure Your ID Day' Oct. 20 in Fargo, Bismarck

AARP and the Better Business Bureau (BBB) of Minnesota and North Dakota invite Fargo-Moorhead and Bismarck-Mandan area residents to shred unneeded documents on “Secure Your ID Day,” Saturday, Oct. 20.

The Fargo event will be held at the Wells Fargo branch on 13th Ave. S. The Bismarck event will be held at the Wells Fargo Gateway Mall location at 1050 E. Interstate Ave. The times for both events are 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Residents and small businesses are encouraged to attend the event and take a key step in preventing identity theft by shredding and properly disposing of sensitive paper documents as well as CDs and floppy discs. We will also continue to collect cell phones no longer in use for Cell Phones for Soldiers – a non-profit organization dedicated to providing cost-free communication services to active duty military members and veterans.

Identity theft is an equal opportunity crime. However, consumers can greatly reduce their exposure to identity theft by taking simple, preventative measures. Secure Your ID Day provides people with an excellent opportunity to destroy sensitive documents for free.

Other local partners include Wells Fargo, Recall, The Forum, and The Bismarck Tribune.

Recall will provide document shredding free of charge. Documents to be shredded should be removed from binders, but staples, paper clips, CDs and floppy discs are okay to be shredded.

Identity theft occurs when someone uses your personally identifying information, like your name, Social Security number, or credit card number, without your permission, to commit fraud or other crimes.

There were nearly 280,000 cases of identity theft reported to the Federal Trade Commission in 2011.

Get more information on the BBB’s Secure Your ID Day and identity theft prevention measures for both consumers and businesses.
