Identity Theft Seminars, Shredding Project Offered at Galveston College

The Galveston County Branch of Thrivent Financial, in partnership with the Lutheran Churches of Galveston County and the Galveston College Student Government Association will be offering two FREE Identity Theft Seminars on Saturday, August 27th.  The seminars will be conducted on the Galveston College campus at 4015 Ave. Q in the beautiful new Seibel Wing of the Cheney Student Center. Parking is available, and the public is invited.

The sessions on identity theft prevention will be presented twice, one at 9:30 am and one at 11:30 am.  The seminars are titled “Identity Theft: What You Need to Know.”  During these educational workshops, participants will learn how identity theft can occur, how to protect personal information, and what steps should be taken if identity theft strikes.

Presenters will teach participants how to spot identity theft scams, and will provide helpful hints on how to safely dispose of documents with sensitive, personal information. The proper use of credit and debit cards will also be covered.

Thrivent Financial is providing a commercial shredding truck from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. that will be located on Ave. Q ˝, adjacent to the Seibel Wing. No reservations are necessary.
