Two important Events For Consumers To Avoid Identity Theft

The Better Business Bureau (BBB) announced its Secure Your ID Day events for October 17, 2009. The nationwide event includes free shredding services (for your old checks, junk mail, bank statements, old files, etc.) and educational programs by local BBB's in each state to help consumers avoid identity theft. Browse the Secure Your ID Day site to learn more about events in your area. Canadian residents should visit the BBB Canada site.

This BBB event coincides with the second annual National Protect Your Identity Week events October 17 - 24, sponsored jointly by the the Council of Better Business Bureaus (CBBB) and the National Foundation of Credit Counseling (NFCC). The event site is available in English and Spanish.

I strongly urge consumers to learn more and attend both events.
