How You Can Protect Your Privacy

Identity theft is one of the fastest growing white-collar crimes. It occurs when an identity thief gains access to and uses an individual's personal identifying information without his or her knowledge in order to commit fraud or theft. To protect your privacy and minimize your risk of becoming a victim of identity theft you can take the following steps:

 

Personal identifying information 

• Protect personal identifying information, such as your date of birth, Social Security number, credit card numbers, bank account numbers, Personal Identification Numbers (PINs) and passwords
• Do not disclose any of your personal identifying information to any person who is not permitted to have access to your accounts.
• Do not disclose any of your personal identifying information over the telephone, through the mail or online unless you have initiated the contact or know and trust the person or company to whom it is given.


Credit, Debit and ATM Cards

• Carry only the most used credit cards and debit cards

Credit Reports

Mail

• Promptly remove mail from your mail box
• Deposit outgoing mail in post office collection box

 

Internet and Telephone Solicitations
