LANSING, Mich. — LAFCU is inviting the public to participate in LAFCU Shred Day to help fight identity theft, Saturday, May 18, 10 a.m. to noon. The credit union is hosting a mobile shredding truck at LAFCU’s West Lansing Branch and headquarters, 106 N. Marketplace Blvd.“Secure destruction of personal information is an important part of protecting one’s financial identity,” said Kelli Ellsworth Etchison, LAFCU chief marketing officer. “Once a thief has a person’s financial, medical or tax information, they can fraudulently apply for credit, medical services or tax refunds.
