On Saturday, October 17 Better Business Bureau (BBB) hosts its annual identity theft prevention and education event – Secure Your ID Day – in communities across North America. Business owners and consumers are invited to bring their paper and data CDs to various locations and BBB will shred items free of charge and on the spot. Protecting against identity theft is paramount. According to the Identity Theft Resource Center, 135,534 Americans were victims of paper-related identity theft during the first half of 2009. In support of BBB’s Secure Your ID Day and to raise awareness about the importance of identity theft protection, Black & Decker will be donating products from its new line of stylish and reliable paper shredders for the home and small office to bureaus that participate in the event – bureaus will donate shredders to consumers who attend local events.
