Fellowes Shredder Helps Prevent Identity Theft

Fellowes Shredder helps prevent identity theft. This tax season we go through a lot of paperwork to get our taxes completed. And we have to get rid of a lot of paperwork too. Shredding papers is the way to keep identity theft away.

That paperwork often has identifying information, including names, addresses, phone numbers, birth dates and social security numbers. Any of this information can be used to steal your identity. And if you think that ripping papers up by hand before throwing it in the trash works, think again. If someone is out to get your information, putting together a few pieces of paper is nothing.

Fellowes ShredderShredding your documents and other paperwork is the best way to keep your identity safe. Fellowes PS-12Cs Cross-Cut Shredder shreds 12 sheets at a time into 5/32” x 2” cross-cut particles, making it very difficult for anyone to put those papers back together again. It fits under your desk so it’s handy while you’re working and fills 4 gallons of shredded paper. It shuts off when hands or large pets come close to the opening. It easily shreds CDs, DVDs, credit cards and paper with staples. What a time saver – not having to remove staples!

Here’s some more information on how to prevent identity theft during tax season from Fellowes:

  • Update your computer security software
  • When sending tax returns via postal mail, wrap with heavy paper, so your documents cannot be seen through the envelope
  • Keep all tax documents and copies of tax returns in a fireproof box

Even after tax season, continue to shred papers that contain any identifying information. Keep them in box close to your shredder as a reminder.

You can purchase Fellowes PS-12Cs Cross-Cut Shredder at Amazon and Amazon.com for $89.99

I wrote this review while participating in a Mom Central Consulting blog tour on behalf of Fellowes. I received a Fellowes paper shredder to facilitate my review.

  1. I have to admit that identity theft is becoming a real problem. I don’t want to think what will I do if such a thing happened to me.

    Better be prepared than sorry!

  2. Document (trash) security is one area many consumers don’t think about. It’s scary to think about what personal information is stolen and used…. which was innocently thrown away and forgotten about.
