Salisbury Bank is helping in the fight against identity theft while building community goodwillby sponsoring a Free Community Shred-It Day on June 23, 2012.
Many people believe that identity theft occurs only when a wallet is stolen or private information is given to unscrupulous parties over the Internet. But a confidential statement in the trash, stolen mail, or a photocopied ID card is a first step to identity theft and a point of vulnerability for almost all of us. With this information, an identity thief could open the door to your bank and investment accounts, order new credit cards, and maybe even get a mortgage in your name.
A Shred-It truck will be located at Salisbury Bank’s Lakeville Branch located at 5 Bissell St, Lakeville, Connecticut on Saturday, June 23, 2012, from 9:00 AM to 12:00 Noon.
Each person may bring up to 4 boxes of paper (paper only; no binders) for shredding by Shred-It personnel.
For more information, contact Salisbury Bank at 860-435-9801.
