Identity theft continues to be a major source of fraud and costs consumers millions of dollars each year. In 2010, identity theft was the most reported fraud according to The Federal Trade Commission.
SMCU wants to help you protect your good name and credit by making it easy for you to get rid of sensitive documents that you no longer need.
On Saturday, October 15, we are holding a free Shred Day at our Northgate, Georgetown and Southcenter branches. Between 10am and 2pm, representatives from Shred-It will be standing by at all three locations with shredding trucks. Bring two file boxes or one garbage bag of documents to have them securely and professionally shredded.
Get the peace of mind that comes from knowing that you are doing everything you can to safeguard your private data. While you are at the branch, stop in to say hi and enjoy some refreshments. Talk to our trained branch staff about other ways to protect your accounts and credit.
