Shred event set for Sunday

By Michele Dotson
Identify theft is a problem across the nation and it is important to protect your personal information at all times. According to the State’s Attorney General’s office, about 300,000 people in North Carolina become victims of identity theft annually. 
Many of these cases can be prevented by shredding personal documents instead of throwing them away in the trash can.
The Charlotte area is one of the two North Carolina cities that rank in the top 100 metropolitan areas for identity theft complaints; the other is Fayetteville.
The public is urged to attend the free Community Shred Event on Saturday, October 12 from 9 am to noon at the McEwen Shopping Center, which is located at the corner of Hwy 51 and Lawyers Road.
The event is sponsored by the Mint Hill Chamber of Commerce and the Mint Hill Police Department.
