The need for Personal, Home, or Residential Shredding, is growing almost as quickly as the incidences of Identity Theft, driven largely by the public’s rational fear of this rapidly expanding crime.

What is identity theft?
According to The FTC, (Federal Trade Commission,) “Identity theft occurs when someone uses your personally identifying information, like your name, Social Security number, or credit card number, without your permission, to commit fraud or other crimes."
Identity theft is widely accepted as being the fastest growing crime in America, and most estimates have it growing at 30% year on year.
The FTC equates this to as many as 9 million Americans a year having their identities stolen.
Adera hears stories about identity theft on an almost weekly basis, and the common thread among all victims, is that they will never casually dispose of information again.
It is not just that theft has occurred, but the fact that some identity theft victims are left drained, both financially and emotionally, by the effort of trying to repair the damage done to their name and reputation.
Consequences of identity theft range from loss of job opportunities, loan denial, and even being arrested for crimes the victims did not commit. But, perhaps the most serious consequence is the potential for mental illness as a result of the anguish and mental trauma identity theft can create for the victim.
The FTC has a vast range of information, and links to resources should you experience identity
