Posted: Updated:
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -
About 250 people took advantage of a program to help keep themselves from being targeted by identity thieves.

The Better Business Bureau of the Mahoning Valley held it's yearly Secure Your ID Day at the Covelli Centre in Youngstown.
 
There was a steady stream of traffic from 9:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. to the Covelli Centre parking lot. People could drop off up to three standard size boxes or bags of documents to be shredded for free.

Carol Potter, the CEO of the Better Business Bureau of the Mahoning Valley, said, "Basically anything with your credit card numbers,bank accounts, Social Security numbers, you need to shred those and be responsible for those documents because the number one source of identity theft is documents."

 Identity protection is in the individual's hands. The number one rule is if you don't need it anymore shred it.
