by Jim Donovan: Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden today announced that his Consumer Protection Unit is hosting three free consumer shredding events this fall to help consumers guard against identity theft. Each event will feature free on-site document shredding and staff will be on-hand to provide information and answer questions about consumer frauds and scams.

Each consumer may bring up to three file-sized boxes of documents, which may contain paper file folders, staples, and paperclips. Emptied boxes will be immediately returned to consumers.
