Here are some simple ways you can protect yourself against identity theft:

  • · First and foremost is education and awareness-be alert for the latest scams and how to prevent becoming a victim
  • · Do not just throw documents containing personal information in the trash (such as statements, canceled checks, credit card bills, etc.) - shred them
  • · Protect the sensitive information contained in your wallet, checkbook, and other items at all times
  • · Never write down PIN numbers, if you do, do not keep them with the card they belong to
  • · Take outgoing mail to the Post Office, or put it in a USPS drop box
  • · Check your credit report often (1-2 times a year)-a small fee can save you a huge problem down the road. See this website for more information.
  • · Always sign credit card immediately
  • · Balance your statements
  • · Pay close attention to new charges on your credit card bill
  • · If you receive a questionable call, tell the caller you are busy and ask what number you can reach them back on.
