Don’t become a victim of identity theft. Saturday is your chance to protect yourself from dumpster-diving thieves who are searching for your personal information in the trash.
NBC Connecticut and Nutmeg State Federal Credit Union are teaming up for a free shred-it event. If you can carry it, we can shred it. And its all for free!
From 9 a.m. to noon, bring your personal papers to any of three Nutmeg State Federal Credit Unions in Rocky Hill, Glastonbury and East Windsor. Get rid of those old bills, mail, credit card offers, statements or any other private documents.
The branches are at:
- 521 Cromwell Avenue, Rocky Hill
- 81 House Street, Glastonbury
- 137 Prospect Hill Road, East Windsor
You can find more details on the Nutmeg website.
The Federal Trade Commission estimates that as many as 9 million Americans become identity theft victims.
