It’s no secret – identity fraud is on the rise, in 2013 rates reached the second highest in eleven (11) years. According to the Javelin Strategy & Research 2014 Identity Fraud Report, 13.1 million people were affected by the crime in 2013.
What’s more, the Identity Theft Resource Center attributes tax related identity theft to be one of the main drivers in that growth with no signs of slowing down.
Luckily, there are many ways we can prevent this. With important documents (think W-2’s, receipts and billing statements) changing hands frequently, it’s important to keep your family and children’s identity safe.
One of the best ways to prevent identity theft is by shredding no- longer- needed tax documents that contain sensitive information with a Cross-Cut shredder, like the Fellowes’ 73Ci. Available at office superstores and online counterparts, the 73Ci offers innovative technologies and features perfect for tax time including:
- Cross-Cut blades that destroy 12 sheets of paper into approximately 397 particles per sheet, making it extremely difficult to reassemble
- 100% Jam Proof System that eliminates paper jams and powers through tough jobs
- SafeSense Technology which automatically stops shredding when hands touch the paper opening
