Here are a few safety tips to protect you from Identity Theft:
* Don’t give out your personal information over the phone.
* When receiving calls from someone claiming to be from your bank, double check you are speaking to a bank representative by calling the representative back using the phone number listed on your bank statement.
* Shred all documents that have your personal information.
* Never deposit mail in an overflowing mailbox. If possible, use the mailbox drop box located inside a post office.
* Remove mail from your mailbox promptly.
* If you’re planning to be away from home and can’t pick up your mail, have a friend/neighbor collect your mail for you or call the US Postal Service (1-800-275-8777) to ask for a “vacation hold”.
* When using your debit card, cover the key pad with your free hand when entering your PIN (personal identification number).
I encourage you to pass these safety tips along to family and friends, and as always, please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
