Identity Theft


Tips on how to avoid identity theft 

 

Identity theft occurs when your personal information is stolen. This can happen when someone gets personal information from bills and/or statements in your trash, impersonates a trusted organization or company in an e-mail or with a fake website, or eavesdrops as you make a transaction in a public place. Here are some tips to help you avoid having your identity stolen.

 

Keep your personal information in a safe place.

 

Shred all discarded documents containing any private personal information such as credit card numbers, social security numbers, bank account numbers, etc. Shred all unused credit card applications and similar mail. Tear up or shred any store or ATM receipts. Promptly remove incoming mail from your mailbox.

 

Avoid opening e-mails from unknown senders and avoid popup screens on the internet. Be sure to log out of accounts and websites when you are finished using them and log off your computer.

 

Do not use personal information such as your birthday, anniversary, family names, and parts of social security numbers, phone numbers, etc. as passwords or PINs. 

 

Do not give any personal information such as credit card numbers, social security numbers, etc. over the telephone or in mail. Never give your social security number on the internet. Only give personal information such as credit card numbers, addresses, phone numbers, etc. over the phone to persons that you know or on websites that you know, trust and are secure. 

 

Inquire about expected account statements that you don’t receive.

 

Use anti-virus and anti-spyware on your computer(s).
