Valley National Bank announced that an Identity Theft Awareness Event is scheduled for Saturday, Jan. 18th, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Horizon branch at 1372 Palisade Ave. in Fort Lee.
This event is partnered with USA Shred, which will provide an on-site truck to shred personal and confidential documents, at no cost, to help customers avoid becoming victims of identity theft. The branch will also host a coat drive which will benefit the Salvation Army.
Residents from the community are encouraged to bring documents such as old bank statements, checks, income tax returns, credit card statements, etc., that can be shredded on-site, for free, according to organizers. Staff members will discuss effective measures that can be used to reduce the risk of fraud and identity theft.
