I finally bought a cross shredder - about time too. You can't take any chances in this day and age.
Especially since I don't trust one of my neighbours and he's friendly with the postman. Just makes it too easy for people to intercept mail.
I'm especially scare of all the pre-approved loan applications that arrive at the door. All my info on there already! It's madness - don't these banks realise they are just inviting this type of this to happen?
