U.S. Bank in Waunakee is offering free document secure shredding services for its customers and all Village residents. Shredding documents is one effective way to help prevent identity theft. People are invited to bring a maximum of four boxes of paper medical, insurance and business records, cancelled checks, bank statements and personal confidential records for shredding," said Jeffrey Butts, branch manager for U.S. Bank in Waunakee. "People are welcome to watch their items being shredded by Cintas. All shredded material will be recycled."

According to the Federal Trade Commission, the fastest growing crime in America today is identity theft. Nearly 25 million Americans fall victim to fraud and identity theft annually, with the financial toll near $50 billion. The best way for consumers to protect themselves from identity theft is to learn about it and take precautions.
