Chandler, AZ (PRWEB) October 16, 2013
Dekker Financial, in Chandler, AZ wants to help you protect your identity. According to two studies done in July 2003, one by Gartner Research and the other by Harris Interactive, approximately 7-10 million people had their identities stolen in the prior 12 months. That works out to 19,178 victims per day, 799 per hour, 13.3 per minute.
While online identity theft is growing, conventional methods like theft of paper mail are still the most common ways thieves gain access to information used to commit identity theft. It is very important to properly dispose of your personal documents.
Dekker Financial is co-hosting a paper shredding event with Alpha & Omega Financial Group and Joan Bundy Law. On October 18th from 11am to 2 pm you are invited to bring your documents for free shredding and have some lunch in their office parking lot at 1490 S Price Rd., Suite 108, Chandler, AZ 85268. A shredding truck from Pro-Shred Security will be there to destroy and dispose of your documents. Lunch will be provided by AZ Bread Co. from Tempe, AZ.
This is a drop in event but to help the organizers plan you can let them know you are coming here.
