Secure Your ID Day – April 18th

The Better Business Bureau (BBB) has announced that April 18th is Secure Your ID Day and is offering free document shredding at various locations across the U.S.

You can bring up to three boxes/bags of paper documents and they will shred them on the spot. Even if you have your own shredder I imagine they’ll have a bigger one that will be much faster, so it’s worth checking out.

What Should You Shred?

If you’re wondering what to bring, check out our shredding page and get a few tips. The short answer is you should shred any documents that has a signature, account number, social security number, or medical or legal information (plus credit offers).

I started using computers in 1978 on the Apple II and was first online (using my “high-speed” 1200 baud modem) in 1989. I’ve managed web sites for several Fortune 500 companies and for internet start-ups. Working for one of those start-ups is what brought me into the world of credit. I was part of the the executive team that ran QSpace, the first company to offer credit reports over the internet.
