Why Homes in New Brunswick Need to Shred Their Documents
People take special care when it comes to the protection of their families and large investments. People lock their homes, apartments and cars regularly to ensure they don’t get stolen, broken into or damaged. However when it comes to their identities, people often forget to make the same effort to keep themselves safe.
If you have documents with private information in your home or apartment, they are at risk of being stolen, along with your identity. No matter how good your home security system is, and no matter what New Jersey neighborhood you live in, you are still vulnerable.
New Brunswick Identity Theft
New cases of identity theft and fraud surface every day. Far too often New Brunswick citizens find themselves as victims of identity theft without having any idea as to how it happened. The sad truth is, it could have been caused by something as simple as having thrown their personal papers in the dumpster behind their house.
Everyday people carelessly throw away bank statements, pay stubs, and medical reports. And thieves know this—they specifically target your trash and are willing to dumpster dive to obtain your information. This is why it’s imperative to shred your documents before you throw them out.
There are several laws in place that protect victims of identity theft. Federal (and New Jersey) law states that victims are not responsible for any more than $50 in fraudulent charges on their accounts. However, if you factor in the costs of the time and effort spent trying to reorganize a financial situation and rebuild a credit score, the cost of shredding your paperwork before tossing it certainly becomes more reasonable.
