Keep your Personal Information Safe
Avoid - Make it harder for thieves and scammers to steal your identity. Shred documents with personal information. Never give out your Social Security Number and other personal information unless you know whom you are dealing with.
Watch - Monitor your credit report, billing and account statements on a regular basis. Look for anything unusual. Question it!
Protect - If you have been victimized, let your account holders know to place an alert on your account. Close any accounts and/or cards that may have been compromised. Report it to the police!
An interesting point about fraud is that it is a crime in which you decide on whether to participate. Hanging up the phone or not responding to shady mailings or emails makes it difficult for the scammer to commit fraud. But con artists are very persuasive, using all types of excuses, explanations, and offers to lead you — and your money — away from common sense.
