Bring your old financial records to one of more than a dozen shred-a-thons planned across the state this fall.
Between today and Thanksgiving, free shredding events are planned across North Carolina in Charlotte, Greensboro, Raleigh, Winston-Salem, Rocky Mount, Apex, Beaufort, Creedmoor, Summerfield, Mooresville, Statesville, Cornelius and Stallings. Multiple events are planned in some cities.
The shred-a-thons are sponsored by a number of groups, including Attorney General Roy Cooper’s Office, the Better Business Bureau, credit unions, shredding companies and local civic groups, law enforcement and media. You can protect yourself from identity theft by bringing pre-approved credit card offers, old bills, out-of-date account statements and other documents that include personal information to any of the shred-a-thons.
This message brought to you on behalf of North Carolina Attorney General Roy Cooper.
