A consumer protection group is offering a free document shredding event Saturday to help residents protect themselves against identity theft.
The Better Business Bureau serving Wisconsin, Summit Credit Union and Pellitteri have teamed for Shredfest, a document shredding event from 8:30-11 a.m. at the south Madison Summit, 2424 Rimrock Road.
Anyone is invited to bring up to three boxes of personal documents to be shredded.
The BBB suggested people shred documents they don't need, such as canceled checks, ATM, credit card receipts, bank statements, paycheck stubs, or any paperwork including a Social Security number, birth date, PIN or passwords.
