Tips For Preventing Identity Theft

Keep Your Identity Yours With These Guidelines

Unfortunately, identity theft is becoming an increasingly common crime. And because of its nature, it is an extremely personal attack. Protect yourself from becoming a victim of identity theft with these tips.

  • Do not carry your Social Security card with you. Store it in a location that you know is safe from thieves.
  • Check your accounts regularly, at least every few days. Go over your statements carefully to ensure there are no erroneous items.
  • Invest in a shredder. The small cost is well worth avoiding the major financial burden you could take on after your credit card number is stolen.
  • Make copies of both sides of all of your credit cards and your ID. You do not want to be left without a number to call when your card gets stolen.
  • Consider minimizing your wallet so that you only carry the essentials with you.
