Exclamation 10 Ways To Squash Identity Theft
1. Destroy private records and statements. Tear up or shred any credit card statements, credit card offers, or any other documents with your personal information on them when you are done looking over them. Remove these items from your mail immediately and store in a safe place until you review them, but remember that the quicker you review them, the quicker you can shred them.

2. Be careful with your Social. Make sure you never bring your social security card with you unless it is absolutely necessary. Never carry it, or any card with your social security number on it, such as a health insurance card, in your wallet. This is the main target for thieves as it gives them access to bank accounts and your credit report.

3. Never let your credit card out of sight.
If you?re afraid of credit card skimming, you should never let your card out of sight. If you can?t keep your card within your sight, pay with cash. It?s as simple as that.

4. Keep your mail safe. Check your mail as quickly as possible after delivery, like whenever you get home from work. If you can?t do that, or don?t like the window between delivery and when you?re available, then put a lock on your mailbox or get a P.O. box.

5. Take your name off marketing lists. Put yourself in the Do-Not-Call registry (1-888-382-1222). Check your privacy settings in your e-mail account and make your settings stricter about who can e-mail you. Scroll to the bottom of junk-emails and see if there is an unsubscribe link.

6. Keep your paper trail to yourself.
Make sure you keep all of your ATM receipts, credit card receipts, and gas purchase receipts safe and never leave them behind.

7. Find out who you?re talking to. Often times identity thieves do work on the phone lines asking people for their personal information. Take no action other than requesting their name, what company they represent, and the reason for their call. If they sound legitimate, contact the company and verify the reason for the call before giving out any personal information.

8. Check your credit report. Obtain your credit report and thoroughly review it at least once a year. You can get your report for free at Annualcreditreport.com.

9. Review your statements more carefully. Make sure that when you look over your statements you recognize the locations, merchants, and purchases on there before you pay the bill.

10. Get an Identity Theft Protection Service. There are many different services that provide different levels of identity theft protection. This great LifeLock review offers a comparison chart that shows all of the leading identity theft protection services along with their features and rates. Get protected today!
