Have you or anyone you know been a victim to identity theft?
Identity theft is becoming more and more serious. It is important that you take the necessary precautions to avoid becoming another victim. Make sure that you do not give any important information, such as credit card numbers or social security numbers, to any person or company that you do not completely trust.
This is especially true for over the phone.
If you are not positive who you are talking to and giving the information to, then do not give them the information. Be cautious and aware of who you are interacting with so that you will not be a victim to identity theft.
The other thing you can do to protect yourself from being a victim of identity theft is run your credit report at www.annualcreditreport.com. You can get a copy of your report from Experian, Trans Union and Equifax for free from this website.
Watch your credit and stay on top of it to help prevent yourself from being a victim of identity theft.
