April 26th, 2014

The Western Virginia Better Business Bureau (BBB) partnered with Commonwealth Document Management (CDM) to make the Secure Your ID Shred Event at the Salem Civic Center (Salem, VA) a resounding success and record breaking day!

Over 600 vehicles were served resulting in 32,000 LBS (16 tons) of shredded personal documents!


Taking a few minutes to shred paper documents saves a consumer from being another statistic.  13.1 million Americans were victims of identity fraud in 2013.  According to Javelin Strategy & Research report, an American becomes the victim of identity fraud every two seconds.  It only takes one misplaced personal document to give a thief everything needed to steal your identity.  This event saves consumers from being another statistic.

Julie Wheeler, President & CEO had this to say about CDM  :

“What can I say but WOW!  Our April 26th Secure Your ID Day was a resounding success, and you had a major part in making it such a memorable event.  We set records by serving 604 vehicles and shredding over 30,000 pounds of documents.

What made the event even more successful was the tremendous work of your crew.  They were both courteous and polite, and their hard work ensured that our consumers had a short wait as the cars kept moving.

It means so much to us to have such a hard working, and professional partner for an event that we believe makes such a huge impact on our community.  Thanks to your hard work, hundreds of consumers in the Roanoke and New River Valley area may have been saved from becoming a victim of identity fraud.

We hope this is just the beginning of a long and fruitful partnership and friendship and we cannot wait to see if we can set more records in October!”
