Fight Fraud. Shred It.

Every two seconds, someone’s identity gets stolen. In Ohio, identity theft is the most reported scam. In 2022, it ranked 18th in the country, with 30,950 identity thefts reported.

Stay one step ahead of identity theft. Shredding confidential documents you no longer need is an excellent way to protect yourself, and the AARP Fraud Watch Network wants to help. All accepted materials will be securely destroyed onsite. Mark your calendars and sign up for one of these upcoming drive-thru shred events. You'll receive an email with the exact address of the event. Refer to the event registration as to when to expect this notification.
