Shredding day

regional - posted Oct, 19 2012

REGION- In 2011, identity theft once again led the list of complaints filed with the Federal Trade Commission. Fifteen percent of all contacts, representing over 279,000 consumers, reported some type of illegal use of personal information resulting in financial loss. Identity theft fraud takes many shapes, for example: government documents/benefits fraud, credit card fraud, phone or utilities fraud, and bank fraud. And, while prevalent, not all of it happens electronically. Liberty Bank is stepping up efforts to help customers and the public protect their personal information and their money. On Saturday Oct. 27, the bank will hold a free document shredding event at its 1132 Storrs Rd., Storrs location. On Saturday Nov. 3, similar events will be held at Liberty Bank, 29 William F. Palmer Rd, Moodus Hours for all events are 9 a.m. – noon. The documents will be shredded on site, so the service is secure. The public is invited but asked to limit themselves to no more than five boxes or shopping bags of documents. The bank is also offering free tips for safeguarding information and bank accounts, which can be accessed on the home page.
