[ISP] Fort Wayne District "Shred It Day" Combats Identity Theft
Start Date: 6/22/2013Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 6/23/2013End Time: 11:59 PM
Entry Description

Fort Wayne, IN – Identity theft has been identified as the fastest growing crime in the 21st century, and as such, the Indiana State Police works diligently with agencies like the U.S. Postal Inspection Service and the Better Business Bureau of Northern Indiana (BBB) in efforts to combat this growing crime.

As a proactive effort, the State Police will join forces with the U.S. Postal Inspectors, the BBB and Afdent in a “Shred It Day” to be held on Saturday, June 22nd from 9 a.m.-12 p.m. A mobile shredder will be provided by Iron Mountain Incorporated in the parking lot of Afdent Dental Services located at 4041 Parnell Avenue in Fort Wayne, for the public to bring unused or unwanted papers, credit cards, or other such materials that contain personal information to be destroyed free of charge.

“The nature of this crime and the effect it can have on its victims makes it even more important to shred personal information, even those papers or labels that may seem harmless, ,” said Andrew Gottfried, U.S. Postal Inspector. “Identity thieves have no scruples in what they can and will do. The U.S. Postal Inspection Service, BBB, Afdent, Iron Mountain and the Indiana State Police hope that “Shred It Day” serves as a reminder of its importance because dumpster divers truly do exist and it’s up to you to be proactive.”
