All paper containing personal information.
"Dumpster Diving" is a popular pastime of identity thieves as it presents so many opportunities to find information that can be worth a lot of money. Shred all paperwork that has an account number (bank statements, credit card statements & receipts, utility bills), a signature, your social security number or medical or legal information - as well as any pre approved credit offers. These provide an identity thief the perfect opportunity to open a new account in your name without your ever having to know - until the debt collectors come knocking!
