How Holdsworth’s Can Help This National Scam Awareness Month

| July 13, 2016

These days it is increasingly important for individuals to ensure that any vital information is protected, even when it is ready for throwing in the bin. This applies on a personal level, businesses and organisations that deal with personal information and need to dispose of thatID theft information in a protected way. This is because personal information has grown to become a valuable commodity for scammers. The aim of this July’s National Scam Awareness Month is to “give consumers the skills and confidence to identify scams, share experiences and take action by reporting suspicious activity.”

The reasoning behind National Scam Awareness Month is clear and that is identity theft. According to Fraud prevention agency Cifas, the number of victims of identity theft rose by 31% to 32,058 in the first three months of 2015 compared to the same period in 2014.

The rise of identity theft has led to a growing requirement for individuals and businesses to safely dispose of documents that may contain vital information regarding a person’s identity. This is where professional shredding comes in to ensure that these documents are effectively destroyed making it impossible for criminals to access the information that they seek.
