The majority of bank related stuff comes via computer Maribug 7 years I don't shred anything, but I'm a student, so I hardly get any mail that would require it, nor do I have access to a shredder.. I get my bank statements online, and if I should happen to get anything with more details than my name + address on it in the mail, I'd tear it up. Plus, I live in a country where identity theft is (for now?) fairly uncommon and credit card offers in the mail aren't that commonplace.

Guess you can never be too careful. lizs 7 years I have been shredding by hand, but skigurl gave me a great idea - I have a confidential shredding bin at the office that could definitely handle the stupid credit card checks that Citibank loves to send me. bchicgrl 7 years If I don't have access to a shredder, I take a sharpie over all of the personal info and then rip it to shreds. bchicgrl 7 years If I don't have access to a shredder, I take a sharpie over all of the personal info and then rip it to shreds. soulight 7 years My workplace has a shedder so I usually use that. skigurl 7 years no, i'm very irresponsible when it comes to stuff like this, and will admit it mlen 7 years i rip most things up myself- i don't own a shredder. its prob not as good but its something! sorrowja 7 years I used the points I earned from my citi debit card to purchase a shedder from Best Buy we shredder everything that has our personal information. ilanac13 7 years absolutely - everything that has any information about me will get torn up into little pieces so there's no way that someone could take my identity! bellaressa 7 years Just call me parnoid.

He throws them in the recycle bin as is and I've warned him that it can be taken out of the trash and used by some identity thief to get a credit card in his name.
