  • Skimming - Stealing credit and debit card numbers as the card is being scanned / processed to pay for a purchase, using a special data collection device known as a “skimmer”.
  • Dumpster Diving – Going through your trash or the trash of businesses to obtain copies of checks, credit card/bank statements or other records.
  • Mail Theft - Stealing mail to get new credit cards, bank or credit card statements, tax information as well as falsifying change of address information.
  • Steal Wallet or Purse – Obtaining personal information from the theft of your purse oidtheft2r wallet.

  • Spoofing and Phishing – When thieves set up look-alike web sites of legitimate businesses and trick consumers into entering their personal information by sending e-mail messages that warn them that their account is about to expire or has been accessed illegally.

Warning Signs Of Identity Theft

  • Your monthly credit card and bank statements suddenly stop arriving.
  • You are denied credit for reasons that do not match your understanding of your financial position.
  • You start getting bills from companies you do not recognize.
  • You receive calls from collection agencies or creditors for an account you don’t have or that is up to date.
  • You observe unusual entries on your credit report.
  • Financial account statements show withdrawals you didn’t make.
  • A creditor calls to say you’ve been approved or denied credit that you haven’t applied for. Or, you get credit card statements for accounts you don’t have.

Preventing Identity Theft

  • Guard your Social Security Number. Remember this is the most important step. This is the key to your credit report and banking accounts. Give it out only when it is absolutely necessary.
  • Minimize the amount of personal financial information and credit cards you carry. Memorize passwords and PINs instead of carrying them with you.
  • Keep personal financial information in a secure place in your home. Shred identifying information before throwing it away.
  • Do Not give sensitive information to unsolicited callers. Remember that most legitimate businesses will not ask for your Social Security or bank account numbers.
  • Shield your hand when entering your PIN at a bank ATM or when making long distance calls with a calling card. Take your credit card receipts and ATM slips.
  • Shred them before throwing them away.
  • Pick up new checks or a new or reissued credit card at your bank rather than having them delivered to your home. Do not have your driver license number or social security number printed on your checks.
  • Check your credit report each year for signs of unusual activity.
  • Limit the exposure of your Social Security number and personal information by giving it only when it is absolutely necessary.
  • Do Not give personal information over the phone, over the Internet or through the mail unless you initiated the contact or are certain of the business’s trustworthiness.
  • Keep duplicate records of your wallet’s contents.
  • Mail payments from a safe location. Do not place them in your mailbox where they can be stolen.
