Kilmartin hosting shredding events

Posted:

PROVIDENCE – Attorney General Peter F. Kilmartin’s office will participate in a series of “shred-a-thons” throughout Rhode Island to mark this year’s National Consumer Protection Week.

National Consumer Protection Week, which kicks off March 3, is a coordinated campaign to encourage consumers nationwide to take full advantage of their consumer rights and to make better-informed decisions. As in previous years, Kilmartin will partner with Doc Shredding Corp. and the Rhode Island Community Food Bank in asking the public to bring a nonperishable food item when they drop off their documents.

In addition to the shredding events, Kilmartin will also share tips and information daily through Twitter and his blog to help Rhode Island consumers protect their privacy, manage money and debt, avoid identity theft and avoid frauds and scams.
