Ten Ways to Prevent Card Data or Identity Theft
- Each year, request a free credit report from the three credit reporting companies at annualcreditreport.com or by calling (877) 322-8228. Reviewing these reports can help detect fraud. Remember to request credit reports for underage members of your household. Fraudsters often focus on young people because their credit is not established yet.
- Cancel cards you no longer use.
- Visit your financial institution's and other creditors' websites at least weekly to monitor account activity.
- Use a crosscut shredder to destroy private documents you no longer need.
- Do not respond to unsolicited e-mails, telephone calls, or text messages that ask for personal information.
- Keep your Social Security card and checks at home in a secure place.
- Do not order checks with your Social Security number or driver's license number printed on them.
- When creating passwords or passcodes, avoid using obvious numerical sequences (for example: 1234), your birth date, your Social Security number, or your mother's maiden name.
- Do not store confidential information on computers, memory sticks, cell phones, or other electronic devices.
- Ask your financial institution about its anti-fraud programs and make sure it has your current contact information.
