You decide to throw your confidential paperwork into the trash. But do you know where your trash ends up? Eventually, it ends up in a landfill, the bags are left opened and then dumped into a pile and left. Your credit card statements with your account numbers are now open to the public. In order to protect yourself from fraud you should be shredding your sensitive material. Statistics have shown that people mainly get their hands on a person’s confidential information by a process called “bin raiding”. By the time you have realized that you have had your identity kidnapped, it’s a year later and the damage is already done.
A thief doesn’t need anything more than one or two pieces of personal information from your trash and some highly designed tools to steal your identity. With this, a thief can have a field day with your credit card in Dolphin Mall spending an exorbitant amount of money. In places where confidentiality is a necessity, like hospitals, financial institutions and schools, shredding is a priority in keeping people’s IDs safe and secure. The most effective way for them to achieve this is by shredding sensitive documents. The same should go for everyone else to help keep personal information private and the most effective way to discard these pertinent details is to completely destroy them.
You do not want to give away your identity, so protect yourself by having your sensitive material shredded. You will have peace of mind if you know your private information will remain private and will not fall into the wrong hands. Do not give any thief an opportunity to walk away with your name, social security number and/or credit card information, all of which you have worked so hard to build.
Here at MicroShred we are committed to your privacy and we ensure that your documents are properly and securely shredded and discarded. Please contact us for more information.

U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Weston, said she will reintroduce legislation to enact tougher penalties against identity thieves.
