Tips to Protect Yourself from Fraud
Imagine looking at your credit card statement and seeing charges you did not make. Not a good feeling! Here are a few simple steps to keep this from happening to you:
Review your credit report – A quick viewing can tip you off to credit card transactions that are not yours, but on your report.
Properly discard documents – Shredding your statements and credit card offers helps keep your personal information just that – personal!
Carry less cards – Try carrying only one or two credit cards.
Never write your PIN down – Memorize your PIN for safety.
Keep on guard – Be careful when being asked for your credit card or social security numbers.
