How to Protect Yourself From Identity Theft

Identity theft occurs when someone obtains your personal information, such as your credit card data or Social Security number, to commit fraud or other crimes. Guard your information online. These days, many of us do most of our shopping and banking on the web. With all those account numbers and passwords floating around, it’s easy for someone to nab your information and go on a spree. • Clear your logins and passwords. This is especially important if you’ve been working on a public computer. Change logins and passwords monthly. • Pay for online purchases with your credit card, which has better guarantees under federal law than your online payment services or your debit card. • Be alert for phishing, a trick in which spam or pop-ups mimic legitimate banks or businesses to obtain your personal information, which they use to access your accounts.

Monitor your credit report. By law, you’re entitled to a free report every year from each of the three bureaus (Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion). Request one every four months, changing bureaus each time. You can order the report directly through each agency, or at annualcreditreport.com. Scan it for abnormal activity, such as accounts or credit cards you didn’t open. Shred sensitive documents. Buy a shredder and regularly shred outdated bank statements, credit card applications, bills, and anything with your personal [...]

Preventing Credit Card Fraud

Credit card fraud – is the most common type of identity crime and on the rise. If you’re like most of us, you own, carry and use a bunch of credit cards. Actually, some of you may have credit cards which you are not aware of, never used them, or don’t even know where they are. If you are one of these people who are also unaware about credit card identity theft risks, please consider the following tips as they apply to your unique needs and situations. Although, you cannot control every single risk, there are a few things you could do to prevent and manage debit or credit card fraud. Here are a few examples: Keep track of your wallet – very few people are aware of the contents in their wallets. This may include debit or credit cards they carry in their wallet or purse, other personal information such as a Personal Identification Number (PIN) written on a piece of paper or a social security card. Always take an inventory of what you carry with you. List the inventory related information such as the type of the card, its number, etc. and keep it in a safe place. This will make sure you can report and recover your lost item in a timely manner, while, limiting credit card fraud damage. Use your wallet carefully – Every time you take your wallet out of your pocket or purse to pay for a purchase, you may expose other confidential information to people around or behind you in line such as a driver’s license information including your name, address, date of birth, and driver’s license number.
