CALVERT CITY, Ky. -
Here at Local 6, we are making it easier to protect yourself against identity thieves. It is another Super Shredder Thursday!
Local 6's Mychaela Bruner joined up with Shred It to show us the best way to protect your family from scammers.
A few clouds and the humidity did not stop these people from taking advantage of another Super Shredder Thursday. Cars and trucks lined up outside the Lake Chem Community Federal Credit Union in Calvert City to shred personal documents. Our friends at Shred It helped us get rid of up to 50 pounds of your personal documents for free.
At last check, at total of 7,000 pounds were shredded. Mitzi McCoy said it is important to shred your documents to make sure your personal information is safe.
"If anyone gets your social security number, address, or things like that, they can open false accounts. That stuff will up your credit reports and we see that happen all the time. It is very important to make sure documents are shredded," said McCoy.
If you could not make it out today, the next Super Shredder is July 16th. We will be at First Community Bank on West Kentucky Drive in La Center.
