June 6 lecture will address identity theft

Valley National Bank will host an Identity Theft Awareness Event 9 a.m.-1 p.m. June 6 at the Edison branch, 2084 Lincoln Highway (Route 27), Edison.

USA SHRED will provide an on-site truck to shred personal and confidential documents — at no cost — to help customers avoid becoming victims of identity theft.

Community residents are encouraged to bring documents such as old bank statements, checks, income tax returns, credit card statements and other forms. Staff members will discuss effective measures that can be used to reduce the risk of fraud and identity theft.
