What is identity theft?Identity theft is a crime that is committed when someone obtains your personal information and uses it to commit fraud or other crimes. This can include using personal information or financial information obtained about you to make unauthorized purchases, or withdrawals from your accounts.
How do I prevent identity theft?
There are things you can do to help avoid becoming a victim of identity theft:
- Downsize your wallet: Only carry what you really need in your wallet, which should be limited to one or two credit/debit cards only.
- Shred sensitive documents. You have no control over your trash once it's taken away from your curb, and thieves DO paw through trash bags hoping to find documents that can help them steal your identity. Don't make it easy for them!
- Be wary when asked for personal information on the phone: Unless you initiated the call or you have reason to trust the caller, NEVER give out your name, address, social security number or date of birth to anyone calling you claiming to be from your bank or other 'alleged' organization.
