CLARION – In order to prevent personal information from being used fraudulently, Rep. Donna Oberlander (R-Clarion/Armstrong/Forest) will again host an Identity Theft and Shredder Event and has scheduled it for Saturday, Oct. 20, from 9-11 a.m.
An industrial shredder truck will be set up in her district office parking lot at 160 S. Second St. in Clarion. Also available will be a variety of handouts and printed materials on ways residents can protect their personal information from falling into the wrong hands.
“This ID Theft and Shredder Event has been quite popular since many people do not have an efficient way to dispose of documents containing account numbers or personal data,” Oberlander said. “We also use this opportunity to give people the latest information about traditional scams and alert them about new ways in which scammers are targeting them.”
Documents that are encouraged to be shredded include those with credit card numbers, Social Security numbers, medical information and bank account information.
Residents are asked to bring just papers and documents in loose form. Magazines and books will not be accepted.
More information about the event is available on her website at RepOberlander.com
