Prevent Identity Theft
The fastest growing crime in the U.S. is identity theft. It is done by misusing the personal information of another individual just to commit fraud.
Identity thieves gather personal information either by stealing mail or workplace records, dumpster diving, computer hacking or using computer code.
It is essential that you should shred your mails, credit application copies, charge receipts, physician statements, insurance forms, expired charge cards, mailed credit offers, or checks and bank statements or anything containing your personal information that you are discarding.
Below are the pros and cons of the Fellowes Shredmate 37788 Cross Cut Shredder as experienced by its users.
Users’ Positive Reviews
- It is small. That is the beauty of it. It’s small but powerful. It shreds credit cards. I like that.
- It takes up a very small space and is not tall, so you can easily put it on a desk surface and use it as you open all of the pieces of junk mail.
- Yes, this shredder is quite small, but for personal use it works quite well. It’s ideal for putting it on a desk so it doesn’t take up much room but you can still use it to shred receipts and such. It shreds everything into nice tiny pieces and is easy to dump out into the trash.
- It does a good job. No paper jam or unshredded paper.
Users’ Negative Reviews
- The wastebasket is small and doesn’t hold much.
- The paper pieces get somewhat bent so they don’t fall flat hence they take up more space in the basket.
- Maybe I will spray-paint it since it’s so ugly.
- I find this unit is a real pain in the patootie to empty. There’s no handle to grab. It’s a smooth, nearly featureless shredding unit that contains a heavy shredding head and motor.
- There’s just nothing to grab to get this thing off the container portion. And when you do open it, shredded paper tends to scatter itself.
- Because of a safety slot, I can’t figure out how to put a liner bag into it. It shreds well, but it is a pain to empty.
