You’ve filed your 2016 taxes. Now it’s time to shred documents you no longer need, and protect yourself from identity theft. Shred Fest is a FREE shredding service in NYC and nationwide, starting Monday, which also is the start of Smart Money Week.
There are Shred Fest locations in all five boroughs.
In 2016, the Federal Trade Commission received more than 132,000 complaints about identity fraud just from New York State residents.
In a recent AARP survey, 88 percent of registered NYC voters said it is very important to guard against identity theft and fraud.
