Greenville AIM Mail Center to Host Free Shredding Day

November 1, 2011
Greenville, SC (November 1, 2011) – Steve Derrik, owner of the AIM Mail Center at 8595 Pelham Rd, Ste 400, is hosting a Free Shredding Day on November 19th, 2011.  From 10 am to 1 pm, members of the public can bring up to three bags or boxes of documents only. “It’s important never to toss personal documents in the trash,” said Derrik.  “Shredding these papers can save you hundreds of dollars and dozens of hours of frustration trying to repair your stolen identity.” According to a report by Javelin Strategy & Research, in 2010, 8.1 million people were victims of identity theft, and the overall losses from identity fraud were $37 billion.  The Javelin report also revealed the average out-of-pocket expense for victims of identity theft was $631 per incident.  Identity thieves search through garbage cans and dumpsters looking for documents with personal information.  One of the best ways to prevent identity fraud is to shred all documents with any type of personal information.  It is recommended that you shred items with birth dates, Social Security numbers, bank information, credit card numbers, and more. In addition to shredding service, Derrick’s AIM Mail Center store offers a one-stop solution for many home office and business service needs; shipping through UPS, FedEx and the USPS, private mailbox rental, packaging and shipping supplies, notary public, printing and copying services, office supplies and more.
