Why Homes in Brooklyn Need to Shred Their Documents

Most people have plenty of security measures in place to protect their families and valuables. People lock their home and cars regularly to ensure they don't get stolen or broken into, and

they keep their money safely stored in banks and safes. 

But because it is not a tangible item, people often forget to make the same effort to keep their identity safe. If you have records containing personal information in your home, they are at risk of being stolen and used against you. No matter where you live or how good your home security system is, you are still vulnerable.

residential shredding Brooklyn NYCEvery year incidences of identity theft in Brooklyn are on the rise. Too often people find that their identities have been stolen without having any idea how it happened. The unfortunate truth is that it could have been caused by something as simple as having thrown their private records into the dumpster behind their home. 

Because people mindlessly throw away financial statements, medical and legal records and credit card information, thieves know to target your trash, and are willing to search through it to find and steal your information. This is why document shredding is so important.

Laws do exist to protect victims of identity theft. Federal laws state that victims are not responsible for any more than $50 in fraudulent charges on their accounts. However, there are additional costs to factor in. The time and effort spent trying to reorganize a financial situation and rebuild a credit score is worth something. With this in mind, the cost of shredding your paperwork before throwing it out definitely becomes more reasonable.
