Identity Theft from Company Waste on the Rise

Advance Secure Document Destruction Trucks

Advance Secure Document Destruction Trucks

Police reports accumulated over 2010 have shown that identity thieves are becoming more and more determined and ruthless in the way they obtain personal information from documentation found in company waste. Australian businesses are being urged to be aware and use accredited document destruction services as a measure against identity theft.

Identity thieves operating in organised gangs have been known to rummage through the same company’s waste consistently until personal information is obtained. This personal data can then be used for fraudulent activities with costly consequences. Other cases involve victims that have carelessly discarded personal details such documents containing credit card numbers, phone numbers or addresses.

The best preventative measure against identity theft is the use of secure document destruction bins, with a regular pick-up schedule. Secure destruction bins will ensure that these gangs of thieves think twice about wasting timed searching for confidential files, records and documents.

CEO of Advance Security Destruction Services, Mr. Stuart Boyd, said that Australian companies not underestimate the intelligence of identity thieves who obtain personal data using this method.

"Victims of identity theft have said that they hardly realised that they would be at risk from identity theft disposing of documents amongst other bits of every day office waste" Mr. Stuart said.

Companies such as Advance Security Destruction can eliminate the risk of identity theft from thieves using this method by providing companies with secure document destruction bins and pick up schedules removing confidential office waste directly from your office.
