There's Gold in your Trash

Criminals are winning at the dumpster by obtaining your personal information such as credit card numbers, social security numbers, signatures, and SFCU statements. Armed with even a few bits of information, thieves can assume your identity, open accounts in your name, go on thousand dollar shopping sprees, and steal checks.

Do not throw anything into your trash that contains personal information about you, such as your name, social security number, checking, savings, or credit card numbers. This includes solicitations for pre-approved credit cards.

If you have a shredder, shred these documents immediately, or otherwise destroy them completely. When in doubt, destroy. Information is better than gold to thieves!
