Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt’s office will mark National Consumer Protection Week, March 4-10, with free document destruction events throughout the state. Schmidt said on Tuesday, that his office works hard year-round to protect consumers, and next week, he plans to place a particular focus on helping Kansans protect themselves from identity theft and stay safe from scams. His office will sponsor free document destruction at 10 locations throughout the state. Securely shredding personal documents is an important step toward preventing identity theft. If you are going to participate, you are asked to limit your documents for destruction to three small bags or boxes. Shredding will be done onsite at most locations, with the exception of one in Topeka, where documents will be securely transported to a shredding facility. The complete schedule and additional information can be found at www.InYourCornerKansas.org or by calling 1-800-432-2310.
