Are you embarrassed about shredding your documents?
There seems to be a new mental disorder (maybe mental disorder is a bit too harsh) that I’d like to to call…
“Paper Shredding Embarrassment Syndrome”
Here’s how it goes:
Customers coming into my paper shredding facility often say,
I only have a few things to shred. Actually, they’re not even really that important. To be honest, they probably don’t really even need to be shredded.
So let me get this straight, you looked online for a shredding company, more than likely gave us a phone call to make sure you got all the details correct, loaded up all your stuff, and then drove down to our facility to get it shredded…
But it’s not that important? Really?
I was talking to a customer about his the other day and I think she pin pointed the exact problem…
They might be a little embarrassed.
It’s as if they will be judged “Paranoid” by me and the rest of the world since they’re going through this process of shredding all their documents.
Here’s the deal, you’re not “Paranoid” because there are tons of people out there that are getting ripped of by Identity Theft.
Did you know that ID Theft was the NUMBER ONE complaint to the Federal Trade Commission in 2010? 19% of all complaints had to do with Identity Theft!
So there’s no need to feel embarrassed that you are being overly protective – you’re not!
We’ve had thousands of customers just like you come down to our facility to either drop-off documents or to watch their documents get shredded while they wait…
You’re in great company with thousands of other who take Identity Theft seriously.
Anyway, I hope that helps if you were perhaps on the fence deciding whether or not to bring your documents down.
Until next time…
Keep Totally Secure!
