Shred Your Private Documents! A Paper Shredder #Giveaway

Did You Know…. Identity theft is the most serious, non-violent crimes and fastest growing type of fraud in North America!
It is tax time right now and like many Canadians, I have been sorting through papers, receipts and more for the past few weeks. As I sort through my 2014 papers, I also shred all of the documents that I no longer need from 7 years ago.

Did you know that you need to save your last 6 years of tax information and supporting documents?

As recommended by the CRA

Protect yourself from fraud with a Fellowes 63Cb Paper Shredder!

Features:

  • Jam Blocker™ blocks jams before they start
  • SafeSense® Technology stops shredding when hands touch the paper opening
  • Energy Savings System provides optimal energy efficiency 100% of the time – in use and out of use
  • Shreds 10 sheets per pass into 5/32”x 2” cross-cut particles (Security Level P-3)
  • Shreds for up to 8 minutes before a 20 minute cool down period is needed
  • 5 gallon pull-out bin
  • 1 year product warranty and 5 year cutter warranty

This shredder can shred Staples, Credit Cards and Paper Clips as well as up to 10 sheets per pass.
Here is a quick demo of me shredding some papers with this paper shredder:

My favourite feature of this shredder is definitely the SafeSense® Technology that stops shredding when hands touch the paper opening. This allows me to keep the paper shredder in a convenient location in my home office (my kitchen) and not worry about my kids hurting themselves. It also means that if I’m multi-tasking and shredding while not fully paying attention, my fingers are protected! Of course, we still have to be super careful when shredding, but this is a fantastic safety feature that keeps us safer.

So far, this paper shredder has truly been put to the test in my home office and it hasn’t let me down yet. My old paper shredder started jamming up from the moment I used it, which meant that I didn’t end up shredding everything that I should.

To help you learn how to prevent fraud, here are the Top 10 Ways to Prevent Identity Theft shared from Fellowes Canada:
