Identity Theft

Identity theft is one of the fastest growing white-collar crimes ( according to the Federal Trade Commission ). Millions of individuals will become victims of Identity Theft. So, how do you protect yourself from the Identity Thief?

Don't give out personal or financial information over the telephone unless you know the caller or initiated the call.

Report lost or stolen checks, credit, and/or debit cards immediately.

Shred any financial statements, credit card bills, and other personal information. Cheap shredders are available in just about any office supply store.

Put outgoing mail, such as bill and credit card payments, in an official US Postal Service collection box.

Contact creditors if your monthly credit card bills do not reach you.

Never leave your checkbook, wallet, or other valuables unprotected even when you are at home. Visitors to your home should not be able to gain access to your personal or financial information.
