Salisbury Bank is helping in the fight against identity theft while building community goodwill by sponsoring Free Community Shred-It Days.
“Many people believe that identity fraud 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.” stated Betsy Summerville, Senior Vice President, Retail Banking.
Summerville continued, “If piles or boxes of documents have accumulated in a corner of your home or office, I invite you to shred the documents you no longer need at our Canaan Branch on July 13th. Paper shredding and recycling services like ours help you responsibly and safely dispose of sensitive documents.”
Each person may bring up to 4 boxes of paper (no binders please) for shredding by Shred-It personnel to the Canaan Branch from 9:00 AM to Noon on Saturday, July 13th.
Salisbury Bank is proud to offer this service, as a way of giving back to the communities we serve. All shredded paper will be recycled.
