ID Theft

Identity theft is a fairly new trend in thievery that has arisen from recent technology advances. Businesses conduct credit card transactions over the telephone and internet without further forms of identity, making it easy for thieves to steal not only one’s identity, but his or her credit as well.

To effectively protect your identity, we recommend all individuals utilize a personal paper shredder and never leave their purse or wallet unsecured—even for a second. Shred all credit card receipts, bank statements and credit card offers, and prevent individuals from viewing your credit or identification cards unnecessarily. Monitor your bank and credit card statements to make sure unauthorized transactions are not being charged to your account. Thieves only need to find one piece of mail or driver’s license to steal your identity and cause irreparable harm.
