Worried about ID Theft? Free Saturday Shred-a-Thon Open to Public

The public is invited to have sensitive documents shredded by the pros Saturday at Anaheim Stadium at an event geared toward preventing identity theft.

Bring up to five boxes – or five grocery bags – filled with junk mail, old tax records and other records with personal information and Cintas trucks will safely destroy the documents.

Hosted by the Automobile Club of Southern California and Experian’s ProtectMyID.com, the goal of the Shred-a-Thon is to protect the public from a crime with a growing number of victims.

More than 11 million people were victims last year, up 37 percent from the prior year, according to authorities.

For more details about the event, which runs from 10 a.m.- 2 p.m., read Orange County Register coverage here.
