Identity theft can occur when someone uses your name, Social Security number, credit card or bank account number without your authorization. With this information they can fraudulently open accounts, make purchases, empty your bank account and damage your credit.
What GSB provides to protect customers:
Free Paper Shredding Days
Proper destruction of confidential information is an important step in preventing identity theft, the fastest growing crime today. GSB hosts events annually where customers may bring up to 25 lbs. of documents to be securely destroyed. Drive-thru service allows people to remain in their cars as our staff removes the items for shredding in on-site industrial trucks. The Bank started the free shredding days over 15 years ago. Each year we serve thousands of customers and shred close to 100,000 pounds of paper. Learn More
