While thieves can’t glean much from your junk mail, statements, mortgage documents and other mail that may contain sensitive personal information can give thieves all they need to steal your identity and commit fraud.

By cutting out paper statements, not only will you be securing your sensitive personal information against theft, but you’ll save paper and reduce your carbon footprint.
