Computer hacking and cyber crime is not the only crime that you need to be aware of. Your paper documents can be a source of vital information hackers use in order to access your information. A way to be sure your personal documents do not fall into the wrong hands is to shred them.
You may want to ask yourself:
What am I throwing into the normal garbage that I should be shredding? Have I thrown away bank statements, credit card information, bank receipts without shredding them first?
How about any of the following?
-Address labels from junk mail and magazines
-Birth certificate copies
-Canceled and voided checks
-Credit and charge card bills, carbon copies, summaries and receipts
-Credit reports and histories
-Documents containing name, address, phone or e-mail address
-Documents relating to investments
-Documents containing passwords or PIN numbers
-Driver's licenses or items with a driver's license number
-Employee pay stubs
-Expired passports and visas
-Investment, stock and property transactions
-Items with a signature
-Medical and dental records
-Papers with a Social Security number
-Pre-approved credit card applications
-Receipts with checking account numbers
-Resumés or curriculum vitae
-Used airline tickets
-Utility bills (telephone, gas, electric, water, cable TV, Internet)
