San Francisco Bay Area Tops Identity Theft List

KCBS reports a survey from the Identity Theft Resource Center that “finds San Francisco ranks number 7 in top cities most at risk for identity theft.”

It’s been interesting discussing the possibility of offering a centralized shredding kiosk with various people. Some say it’s not that big a deal for people to buy their own shredders.

But there are many people for whom buying a paper shredder would be a luxury that is not high on their list. With the rampant occurance of identity theft, still mostly due to paper-related issues and mail, I truly believe that shredding should become a public service. Maybe a “utility” like the gas and energy companies needs to be created for shredding!
