Heritage Trust Federal Credit Union Hosts Free Community Shred Event


(CHARLESTON, S.C.) – 5/8/2017 – – Heritage Trust recently held a free community shred day event to help mark the end of tax season. The event, which was coordinated with Iron Mountain and Northwoods Mall, provided the local community with an opportunity to safely and securely dispose of their sensitive documents.
Through this event, members of the Heritage Trust team were able to help event participants securely shred over 6,000 pounds of documents including expired debit and credit cards, medical bills, receipts, tax statements, credit card offers and more.
“Heritage Trust was able to help local residents protect their personal information and reduce the risk of identity theft by providing onsite immediate disposal of at risk documents. Through this event we unloaded 135 vehicles potentially keeping sensitive information out of the hands of scam artists,” commented Nise Lowell, Heritage Trust Public Relations Officer. Over the past several years fraud appears to have not changed substantially. The total number of victims remained steady at 13.1 million, and the total fraud amount fell slightly to $15 billion.
