WALB has teamed up with our partners again to prevent you from being a target for identity theft.

HeritageBank of the South, WALB, and ShredEX offered a free shred day for southwest Georgia.

The state was ranked seventh in the nation for identity theft by the Federal Trade Commission.

It didn't start until 9 a.m. but people were lined up long before to safely destroy their personal information.

"It's a free event for everyone in the community to bring their tax documents, credit card statements, and anything with your personal information to be shred. We also encourage all of our customers sign up for electronic statements they're more efficient and safer than paper mail," said Heather Nichols, HeritageBank of the South.

This is the 4th year of the shred event.

Heritage Bank also had simultaneous shred-a-thons in Adel and Statesboro Saturday morning.
