With the several schemes out to prey on innocent residents, it is imperative to know what to do to safeguard yourself.
2400 W. 95th St. is stepping up to help residents protect themselves from these dangers by hosting an identity theft seminar on Tuesday, April 24, from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
At the seminar, residents will learn how to identify identity theft, how to protect themselves from it and how to protect themselves from the various fraud schemes.
To RSVP for the event, contact Julie Partacz at 708-499-2000, extension 60110.
A large part of protecting yourself against identity theft is making sure you properly dispose of any sensitive documents. Standard Bank will have a neighborhood shred event, also at the bank, on Saturday, April 28 from 9 a.m. to noon. The bank limits you to four banker boxes of items to shred per household.
Both events are free and open to members of the Standard Bank community.
