Why Homes in Baltimore Need to Shred Their Documents
Most people have plenty of security measures in place to protect their families and their large investments. People lock their homes and cars regularly to ensure they don’t get stolen, broken into, or damaged. Because it’s intangible, people often forget to make the same effort to keep their identity safe. If you have documents with private information in your home, they are at risk of being stolen and used against you. No matter how good your home security system is, and no matter where you live, you are still vulnerable.
Every year incidences of identity theft are on the rise. Far too often, people find themselves as victims of identity theft without having a clue as to how it happened. Unfortunately, it could have been caused by something as simple as having thrown their personal papers in the trash. Because it’s so common that people mindlessly throw away bank statements, medical records, and credit card information, thieves know to target your trash and will dumpster dive to obtain your information. This is the reason document shredding is important.
There are laws in place that protect victims of identity theft. Federal law states that victims are not responsible for any more than $50 in fraudulent charges on their accounts. However, if you factor in the costs of the time and effort spent trying to reorganize a financial situation and rebuild a credit score, the cost of shredding your paperwork before tossing it certainly becomes more reasonable.
Document shredding services are not just for large companies anymore. Advancements in the field of paper shredding have made it easier than ever for a household to make use of these services.
