Identity Theft Is On The Rise

ID Theft On The Rise - Frustrated PersonWhat steps should you take to protect yourself?


Here are 6 simple things to deter identity thieves:


1) Leave your health insurance and social security card at home. The only time you need your healthcare card is a visit to the doctor. If you lose your wallet these are a perfect find for an ID Thief.

2) Shred all papers with any information on you. Pre-approved credit card offers and other thrown away mail, documents are a perfect way for a thief to steal your identity.

3) Empty your mailbox daily and send payments, bills from the post office not sitting in your mailbox. Your checks and new mail contain personal information that ID thieves thrive on.

4) Never give out personal information over the phone or by email unless you initiated the contact. Many ID/Fraud cases are from imposters from government agencies asking for personal information.

5) Use strong passwords on your phone, computers, and tablets. A mix of letters in uppercase and lowercase, numbers and symbols are best. This will help prevent hackers from getting your personal info.

6) Monitor your accounts from banking and credit cards. Check each monthly to make sure you do not have suspicious charges even small amounts as identity theft thieves often start with minimal purchases.

No one can prevent all identity theft.

1-If your LifeLock plan includes credit reports, scores, and/or credit monitoring features (“Credit Features”), two requirements must be met to receive said features: (i) your identity must be successfully verified with Equifax; and (ii) Equifax must be able to locate your credit file and it must contain sufficient credit history information. IF EITHER OF THE FOREGOING REQUIREMENTS ARE NOT MET YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE CREDIT FEATURES FROM ANY BUREAU. If your plan also includes Credit Features from Experian and/or TransUnion, the above verification process must also be successfully completed with Experian and/or TransUnion, as applicable. If verification is successfully completed with Equifax, but not with Experian and/or TransUnion, as applicable, you will not receive Credit Features from such bureau(s) until the verification process is successfully completed and until then you will only receive Credit Features from Equifax. Any credit monitoring from Experian and TransUnion will take several days to begin after your successful LifeLock plan enrollment.
