HORRY SHERIFF SHRED EVENT TO PROTECT AGAINST IDENTITY THEFT
The Horry County Sheriff’s Office, along with AARP South Carolina and Shred Alert, is hosting a shred event on Friday, May 1, 2015, from 8 a.m. until 12 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. To help fight back against identity theft, the public is encouraged to bring up to three bags or boxes of your old personal information to a mobile shredding truck that will be located at the Horry County Government & Justice Center, 1301 2nd Avenue in Conway and at the Shred Alert office located at 4727 Northgate Boulevard in Myrtle Beach. The goal this year is to shred 15,000 lbs. of paper!
Identity theft and identity fraud are terms used to refer to all types of crime in which someone wrongfully obtains and uses another person’s personal data in some way that involves fraud or deception, typically for economic gain. Identity theft has become one of the fastest growing crimes in the United States.
One of the biggest ways to protect you against identity theft is to shred personal information. You can also adopt a “need to know” approach to your personal data. For example, the more information you put on your checks like social security number and home phone number, the more chances that information could land in the hands of a criminal.
If you are traveling, have your mail held at your local post office or ask a trusting neighbor to collect your mail while you are away. Also, check your financial information regularly, and look for what should be there and what shouldn’t.
For more information about identity theft and how to protect yourself, go to the United States Department of Justice website athttp://www.justice.gov/criminal. For more information on the upcoming shred event, contact AARP South Carolina at 866.389.5655.

We are proud of our scenic neighborhood of half-acre or greater sized home sites, some adjacent to protected state wetlands woodlands. Our storm water management ponds, while maintained, are very naturalistic. Our ponds are home to a variety of wildlife, such as blue heron, snowy egrets, turtles, sun fish, blue gill, catfish, mallard ducks, and even a junior alligator nicknamed "George." [Update: While Gator George has not been seen since Spring 2013, Son of George was spotted last summer.] Migrating swan visit each spring and fall. The woods abound with both deciduous and evergreen trees and shrubs, including Carolina pines, water and live oak, star gum, wax myrtle, red bay, jessamine - Carolina jasmine, and wild magnolia.
