Winston-Salem, NC -- Trashing your documents and paperwork with your social security number, bank account numbers, and credit card numbers is giving crooks an easy target to steal your identity.
Fraud experts will tell you, shredding is the safest solution. But not all shredders are created equal. The typical line shredding still allows a crook to dive into a dumpster and piece together your information. To really protect yourself look for a cross-cut shredder. Most retail starting at $25.
Dean's Office Machines sponsored the 2 Wants To Know Shred-a-Thons in Greensboro and Winston-Salem. Brian Jobe of DOM joined us at the LJVM coliseum to give us a show us the difference between cross-cut shredding and regular shredding.
