Beware of Traditional Tactics
Identity thieves continue to use simple, time-tested methods to steal your identity. Listed below are some of these methods and how to avoid them.
- Use a locking security mailbox if possible, or consider
renting a P.O. box at your local post office.
- Put outgoing mail into a postal mailbox or drop it off at
the Post Office. This will keep it from sitting unsecured in your
mailbox all day.
Dumpster Diving (Trash Theft)
- Shred unwanted documents containing personal information and all unsolicited credit card and loan offers
- Invest in a high-quality cross-cut shredder. Thieves can piece together papers shredded into strips much easier than they can the smaller cross-cut pieces.
"Shoulder surfers" observe your actions or eavesdrop to steal personal information. They look over your shoulder or stand close by and may use a camera phone to record you.
- Shield keypads with your hand or body before entering
PINS, passwords or card numbers
- Avoid sharing personal information over the phone
in public. If you must, use a low voice and shield
Purse or Wallet Snatching
- Minimize what you carry in your wallet,
especially payment cards
- Never carry your Social Security card
unless absolutely necessary
- Don't carry PINS or account passwords with you;
memorize them or keep them safely locked up at home
