Maximum security is possible only with your help. Here’s what you can do to stop these crimes before they happen:
- Do not give out financial information such as checking and credit card numbers, or your social security number, unless you know the person or organization.
- Report lost or stolen checks immediately. Your bank will block payment on them.
- Notify your banker of suspicious phone inquiries such as those asking for account information to “verify your account” or “be awarded a prize.”
- Closely guard your ATM personal identification number and ATM receipts.
- Shred any financial solicitations and bank statements before disposing of them.
- Put outgoing mail into a secure, official Postal Service collection box.
- If regular bills fail to reach you, call the company to find out why.
- Destroy pre-approved credit card offers before you throw them out. A home shredder is the best thing to use on financial statements, receipts, and old cancelled checks that you are discarding.
- Account for all new checkbooks when you receive them in the mail.
- Keep new and cancelled checks in a safe place.
- Block your ATM transactions with your body. Keep the keyboard from view and prevent someone from learning your personal identification number (PIN).
- Commit all passwords and personal identification numbers to memory. The less you have on paper the less likely it is that someone will learn these numbers.
- Be creative when you select a password. Don't be obvious like using your last 4 digits of your social security number, phone number, address, birth date or any format that could easily be decoded by thieves.
- If your bills include questionable items, don't ignore them. Instead, investigate immediately to head off any possible fraud.
