Tips How to Avoid Identity Theft and Identity Fraud

Slide 2:

Consider subscribing to an identity theft protection service . Several companies offer services to help you in the case that you become victim to identity theft. For information on some of these services, please see our reviews of identity theft products.

Slide 3:

Keep personal documents in a safe . Consider keeping a personal safe for your home as well as a  safety deposit box  elsewhere. You can use your safe at home to protect items such as your social security card, birth certificate and passport.

Slide 4:

Protect your purse or wallet   at all times. The best purses are those that can be zipped or closed shut. Try not to use bags that others can easily see or reach into, and keep bags close to your body with a tight grip at all times. Do not leave wallets or purses in the car, or if you must, do not leave them exposed or in an obvious place.

Slide 5:

Photocopy the contents of your wallet . Make copies of credit cards, ID cards, and all other personal documents you keep in your wallet. Also, keep records of phone numbers to contact in case you need to close accounts or order replacement items.

Slide 6:

Examine your bank account statements monthly   to ensure that your accounts have no unauthorized charges. If they do, contact your banking institution immediately.

Slide 7:

Remove yourself from promotional lists   such as junk mail and pre-approved credit card lists. This added clutter doesn’t do any good, and you at risk of ID theft if a stranger gets their hands on your pre-approved cards.

Slide 8:

  Cancel credit cards that you aren’t using . There’s no reason to have open credit for the taking. Besides, the less credit you have open, the less you’ll have to monitor.

Slide 9:

Select passwords that are difficult for others to uncover . An impersonal combination of letters and numbers is the best.

Slide 10:

Protect your computer   with anti-spyware and anti-virus software. Make sure you keep them up to date.

Slide 11:

Do not reveal personal information   to unverified sources whether over the phone or the Internet. Do not feel pressured to answer personal questions if you do not trust the source. Feel free to request verifying information before giving anything up.

Slide 12:

Monitor your credit . Take advantage of your free credit reports and consider purchasing additional copies throughout the year for continuous monitoring. Consider placing fraud alerts and credit freezes on your account for greater protection.

Slide 13:

Shred personal documents   before throwing them away. Dumpster diving is a common method of stealing personal information for the sake of identity fraud.  Purchase a shredder  for your home and make sure you destroy paperwork containing personal information before discarding. This  includes mail, credit card statements and even receipts .
