Identity theft continues to be the fastest growing crime of consumer fraud. The Federal Trade Commission reports over 9 million victims in each of the last three years. Texas ranks 4th in the amount of reported cases per capita according to the FTC website. Shredding your personal papers is one of the best ways to protect yourself.
“Today, most identity thieves still rely on the tried-and-true method of getting their hands on your paper records – your real documents serve as the basis for their dirty work, ” said Don Sowa, President, and operator of the Friendswood based Copy Doctor. “As a business who handles millions of document copies each year, we want to be good stewards of those and our environment. Securely shredded documents are then recycled by our partner company, Southern Shred.”
Individuals may bring up to 100 pounds of paper (staples, paper clips and credit cards are okay) to feed into the Southern Shred Secure Shredding mobile unit parked in front of Copy Doctor, 1101 S. Friendswood Drive, in Friendswood, TX. For more information please call Copy Doctor at 281-482-7500.
