Helpful Tips to Prevent Identity Theft:

 

  • Shred mail and important documents.
  • Avoid carrying Social Security cards, birth certificates, and passports.
  • Do not give out financial information over the phone if someone calls you, even if they claim to be from the bank.
  • Report lost or stolen checks and credit cards immediately.
  • Notify your banker of any messages, such as those asking for your account information to verify a statement or that you “won a prize.”
  • Never give your ATM PIN number to anyone
  • Drop outgoing mail in a secure Postal Service collection box. Thieves can steal your mail and steal your identity.
