LAFCU Holding Free Shred Day to Help Prevent Identity Theft

LANSING, Mich. — LAFCU is inviting the public to participate in LAFCU Shred Day to help fight identity theft, Saturday, May 18, 10 a.m. to noon. The credit union is hosting a mobile shredding truck at LAFCU’s West Lansing Branch and headquarters, 106 N. Marketplace Blvd.

“Secure destruction of personal information is an important part of protecting one’s financial identity,” said Kelli Ellsworth Etchison, LAFCU chief marketing officer. “Once a thief has a person’s financial, medical or tax information, they can fraudulently apply for credit, medical services or tax refunds.

“This is great timing if your spring cleaning involves disposing of personal documents.” 

Each person can bring up to 10 Bankers Boxes of materials to be shred at no cost.

Recommended materials include any documents that have identifying information such as financial, medical and Social Security account numbers. This includes receipts, address labels, bills, insurance claims and tax forms.

Financial identity protection is a key LAFCU benefit for members. In addition to regular free Shred Days, LAFCU partners with CyberScout™ to offer identity management and monitoring services that include full identity-theft recovery assistance. More information is at www.LAFCU.com/CyberScout.
