Did you know the holidays are a favorite time of year for criminals to steal your sensitive personal information such as credit card and bank account numbers? While you’re distracted with parties, picking the perfect gifts and returning the ones you don’t want they’re on the take for your personal information. If you did a lot of shopping in December you might not even notice a few extra charges on your statements in January.
Thieves can steal your information when you make purchases online or in the store, but they can also get it by going through your trash and finding documents that contain everything from account numbers to social security numbers. One of the ways you can keep that sensitive information from falling into the wrong hands is to destroy those documents. I always tore up papers and cut up old credit cards with scissors, but that really didn’t provide me with enough security.
Now I have the Fellowes P-12 C Cross-Cut Paper Shredder to make sure my private documents don’t fall into the wrong hands.
I mentioned I was just tearing up sensitive documents before. Well the cross-cut blades on the The P-12 C cut a piece of paper into 309 pieces making it extremely difficult to reassemble. It can handle 12 pieces of paper at a time and even shreds credit cards. It also handles any paper clips and staples that might be on the paper. I tried out both paper and a credit card and I thought it worked great.
I do use the shredder at home, so I’m concerned about safety when the kids are around it. I don’t have to worry because the P-12 C has SafeSense® technology which automatically disables the shredder when hands touch the paper opening. This feature also worked great. As soon as I placed a hand near the shredder opening a light came on indicating that the shredder was disabled. No worries about little fingers getting caught in there!
The price is also right on this shredder. It’s available from Walmart for just $99.97 which isn’t much to pay to protect your family from criminals who want to steal your personal and financial information. This shredder is a great buy for your home office.
