Santa Ana Star Casino, New Mexico's Best Bet, is teaming up with Unicor LLC to combat identity theft by hosting a community shredding event. Guests are invited to bring paper documents to the casino on Saturday, April 22, between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m., where they will be securely destroyed and recycled.
"According to news sources, a new person falls victim to identity theft every two seconds," said Santa Ana Star Casino Director of Marketing Tammy Neil. "With this crime becoming more and more common, Santa Ana Star Casino is proud to take a stand and help our friends and neighbors protect themselves by making it easy to securely dispose of paper documents."
At Santa Ana Star Casino's community shredding event, Unicor LLC will be accepting up to two cardboard boxes or one standard trash bag of paper per person. All documents will be securely destroyed and then recycled. This is a free event open to all members of the community.
"We have to be proactive about protecting our personal information," said Neil. "It's our hope that this event will raise awareness about this issue and inspire the people of our community to take practical steps to reduce their risk of identity theft."
In March, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) stated that identity theft was the No. 3 most common consumer complaint reported to the commission and other law enforcement agencies in 2016. Though employment and tax-related fraud were the most commonly reported forms of identity theft, credit card fraud, phone and utilities fraud, bank fraud and loan and lease fraud are the other leading forms.
For more information about the community shredding event, please contact Santa Ana Star Casino at (505) 867-0000 or visit www.santaanastar.com.
