Tips to Prevent Identity Theft & Fraud

Only carry essential documents with you.

When ordering new checks, pick up your checks at the bank instead of having them sent to your home. This makes it harder for your checks to be stolen, altered and cashed by identity thieves.

Keep new checks out of the mail.

Avoid carrying extra credit cards, your Social Security card, birth certificate or passport with you outside the house and keep these items secured.

Be careful when giving out personal information over the phone.

  • Identity thieves may call, posing as banks or government agencies. To prevent identity theft, do not give out personal information over the phone unless you initiated the call.
  • Register your phone number with the National Do Not Call Registry to avoid all calls from telemarketers trying to get your information over the phone. Visit www.donotcall.gov.

Your trash is their treasure.

Shred your receipts, credit card offers, bank statements, returned checks and any other sensitive information before throwing it away.

Make sure others are keeping you safe.

Ensure that your employer, landlord and anyone else with access to your personal information keeps your records safe.

Stay on top of your credit.

The three nationwide credit reporting agencies have set up a central website through which you can order your free annual credit report. Visit www.annualcreditreport.com to request a free copy of your credit report every 12 months from each credit reporting agency.

Protect your Social Security Number.

Only a few organizations such as motor vehicle departments, tax departments and welfare departments have the right to require your Social Security Number. In addition, employers, banks and other financial institutions that necessitate tax transactions can require your Social Security Number, but for all other accounts, ask if they will accept an alternative proof of identification.

Follow your credit card billing cycles closely.

Identity thieves can start by changing your billing address. Making sure you receive your credit card bill every month is an easy way to prevent identity theft.

Keep a list of account numbers, expiration dates and telephone numbers filed away.

If your wallet is stolen, being able to quickly alert your creditors is key to prevent others from using your personal information or bank and credit cards.

Create passwords or PIN numbers out of a random mix of letters and numbers.

Creating unique passwords makes it harder for identity thieves to discover these codes.

Protect your identity online and be wary of email schemes.

  • Be aware of any information that you, your friends, family, and organizations you are associated with post online. Any personally identifiable information about you online like date of birth or mother’s maiden name may be used for identity theft.
  • Be aware of suspicious “phishing” email requests and never send information such as your Social Security information, credit card number or User ID/Password information through an email.

Give your mailbox a makeover.

  • Junk Mail Opt-Out: Every pre-approved offer you receive in the mail is an invitation for someone to open a credit line in your name, so limit the amount of unwanted mail you receive. The best way to do that is to contact the Direct Marketing Association’s Mail Preference Service.
