"Dumpster Diving" is a theft technique that attempts to collect personal information from other people's trash. Especially valuable for identity thieves is information about your credit card or even receipts and bills.

We recommend the following to prevent "Dumpster Diving":

Before disposing of any documents containing personal or business information, shred them or dispose of them in a separate privacy garbage can.

If you are disposing of an old credit card, please cut it into at least four pieces before disposal.
