There are many steps consumers can take to minimize their risk of being a victim of identity theft. You should closely guard your social security number and review your bills and credit reports regularly. You should also shred any sensitive documents regularly. Let Texell help protect your identity and good name at our Drive-up and Drop-off Shred Event for Texell members only.
