Deter Identity Thieves by Safeguarding Your Information

Categories // Announcements

SHRED financial documents and paperwork with personal information before you discard them.

DON’T GIVE OUT personal information on the phone, through the mail, or over the internet unless you know who you are dealing with.

NEVER CLICK on links sent in unsolicited emails; instead type in a web address you know. Use up-to-date firewalls, anti-spyware and anti-virus to protect your computer.

DON’T USE an obvious password like your birth date, your mother’s maiden name or the last four digits of your Social Security Number.

KEEP your personal information in a secure place at home, especially if you have roommates, employ outside help, or are having work done in your home.
