Document Shredding Helps Americans Fight Identity Theft

Knoxville, IA– 4/12/11 McKay Insurance Agency, Inc. and Shred-it are joining forces to help combat identity theft. On Saturday, April 30th community members are invited to attend the Knoxville shredding event, part of the Community Shred campaign taking place at McKay Insurance Agency, Inc.

WHERE: Shred-it will be on site at McKay Insurance Agency, Inc. located at 106 E Main Street from 8am until noon.
Directions: McKay Insurance is located on the corner of Main and First Street in downtown Knoxville.

WHAT: Community members are invited to bring all the unwanted personal documents they can carry for shredding by Shred-it mobile truck. For safety purposes each person must stay with their items until they are processed. Information on combating ID theft will also be available.

WHY: Identity theft is the fastest growing form of consumer fraud in North America.
During tax season it is particularly important to take preventative measures. Community members can protect themselves by regularly destroying confidential and personal documents rather than disposing of them in non-secure places such as garbage bins. McKay Insurance feels this is a great step toward personal risk management of identity theft.

WHO: This is event is funded by McKay Insurance Agency, Inc.
