“Declined, what do mean declined?” I said to the cashier as she stood there with no other answer to give me. Then the dreaded realization came to me as she said “Sorry ma’am your card has been declined.”
“This can’t be true, is this really happening to me?” “Have I really been the victim of identity theft?” I thought to myself. I franticly called my bank and my fears were confirmed as I heard the customer representative say “zero balance”. I had always been one of those trusting people that thought this never happened to people like me. Just a few days earlier I had rejected the idea of getting a paper shredder based on my theory that it would just a waste of money because nothing had ever happened before and there was no reason to believe anything ever would happen. What am I to do? There is only a few days until Christmas.
I awoke from out of my deep sleep and disturbing dream to a new resolve. The realization of the damage I could bring to myself and my family for throwing away bank statements, receipts, order forms, or even bills without shredding them first became very clear to me.
Being a private business owner I know the inherit value of properly disposing of all documents and receipts. The Heavy-duty Cross-Cut blades destroy 12 sheets of paper into 397 particles, making it extremely difficult to reassemble. The 100% Jam Proof System also eliminates paper jams and powers through the toughest of jobs.
As a mother I also know the importance of having a safe system to accomplish these tasks without worry of one of my small children getting to close to the machine. With the SafeSense Technology which automatically stops shredding when hands touch the paper opening, I can use the Powershred 73Ci with peace of mind.
In shopping for around for a shredder I would want something that would last. One that would not constantly jam or continually have to be fixed, opened, and pulled apart. Fellowes Powershred 73Ci has not only filled my expectations, it completes the job with ease with its powerful performance and has given me back my sense of security.
The 73Ci is available at office superstores and their online counterparts for a suggested retail price of $199.99. Don’t wait until it is too late to start securing your information!
