Protect against identity theft

Did you know that Florida is number 1 in the nation for identity theft complaints?

Protect yourself. If you have financial records, credit card statements, pay stubs or any other kind of personal documents that you no longer need, bring them to the Shred-a-thon at the Lake Mary branch of CFE Federal Credit Union, 1000 Primera Blvd., Lake Mary, on Saturday, Oct. 1 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. — not far from us here at Pebble Creek at Lake Mary.
