·  Keep for seven years: invoices, cancelled stock certificates, payroll records, withholding statements, and more. 

·  Keep permanently: deeds, mortgages, tax returns, audit reports, insurance records, legal correspondence, property records, and more.

For victims who have experienced this fraud, BBB will also be there to listen to their story, inform them about filing a report and who they need to contact to resolve the issue. More details can be found at go.bbb.org/nw-syid
