    Credit cards are very useful. Normally there is no requirement of any collateral, and the amount of credit is fixed
        on the basis of the perceived creditworthiness of the primary holder, which is usually dependent on the
                                                  person’s credit score.

Identity Theft - the 10 Best Tips You Can Use Right Now!

We've all heard horror stories about fraud that's committed by someone stealing a name, address,
Social Security number or credit card. Here are 10 suggestions you can take to help protect yourself.

1. The next time you order checks, have only your initials (instead of your first name) and last name put
on them. If someone takes your checkbook, they won't know if you sign your checks with just your
initials or your first name, but your bank will know how you sign your checks.

2. When you are writing checks to pay your credit card accounts, DO NOT put the complete account
number on the "For" line. Instead, just put the last four numbers. The credit card company knows the
rest of the number, and anyone who might be handling your check as it passes through all the check
processing channels won't have access to it.

3. Put your work phone number on your checks instead of your home phone. If you have a PO Box,
use that instead of your home address. If you don't have a PO Box, use your work address.

4. Never have your Social Security number or driver's license number printed on your checks. You can
add it if it is necessary. But if you have it printed, anyone can get it.

5. Place the contents of your wallet on a photocopy machine. Do both sides of each license, credit
card, etc. You will know what you had in your wallet and all of the account numbers and phone
numbers to call and cancel. Keep the photocopy in a safe place. It's also a good idea to carry a
photocopy of your passport when traveling abroad.

6. For couples or friends traveling together - each of you should carry a different, unique credit card.
For example, one of you could carry a Visa card and one of you a Discover card. Don't both carry the
same credit card! That way if one of you has their credit card stolen, you still have a valid credit card to
use and aren't completely without funds while you are traveling.

7. Another tip for couples or friends traveling together - each of you should carry the other person's

Identity Theft Protection
DON'T BE A VICTIM. Use PROVEN fraud protection techniques to SAFEGUARD YOU and YOUR FAMILY against IDENTITY THEFT.

photo copies of their credit cards and passport. If someone steals your wallet or purse, your traveling
companion still has copies of all your information.

8. When you're reading email, don't click on any of the links listed in the email message. No matter
how tempting the offer is! This is a way 'phishers' use to direct you to their website and capture your
credit card and personal information.

9. We are told to cancel our credit cards immediately. But the key is having the toll free numbers and
your card numbers handy so you know whom to call. Keep these numbers where you can find them
separate from your credit cards.

10. File a police report immediately in the city where your credit cards, purse or wallet were stolen. This
proves to credit providers you were diligent, and this is a first step toward an investigation.

       Identity Theft Statistics Now Show That There Has Been An Increase In Id Theft Online
                                                                By Ann Marier



 Identity theft is one of the most troubling problems of the modern world. Although it is hard to come by
good identity theft statistics, one thing is clear. Credit card theft and other forms of theft of identity are
on the rise. If this was not troubling enough, consider the fact that you never know when your identity is
being stolen. You will only find out days, weeks, or even months later. It is almost impossible to prevent
identity theft. At best, all you can do is take steps to make it easier to recover your identity.

Identity theft stats do make one thing clear: people who take steps to protect their identities are much
less vulnerable. Identity theft statistics tell us that people who keep good financial records, make sure
that their Internet accounts are well protected, frequently change passwords, and regularly check their
credit, are less likely to be victimized. When they are the victim of identity theft, these people can
resolve the issue much more quickly. It is easier for them to prove that their identity has been stolen
and that they are not responsible for any purchases that have been made in their name.

Statistics on identity theft, however, tell us nothing about which steps are the most important, and
which ones can be ignored. Because identity theft is such a new problem, identity theft statistics are
not all that sophisticated yet. The only solution is to take all the steps that you can to protect your
identity. This can prove costly, but it is worth it! For example, according to recent identity theft statistics,
if your computer is well secured you are several times less likely to have your identity stolen.

According to identity theft statistics, it is as important to take precautions when you go on vacation as
when you are at home. When you are traveling, particularly if you're going for an extended stay, you
are vulnerable. You will not see the mail coming into your house, and will be unaware of unusual
charges on your bank account until it is too late. Fortunately, identity theft protection works whether or
not you are at home. Identity theft statistics, in fact, do not indicate a significant difference in security
between people who are home, and people who are traveling abroad. As long as you protect your
identity, you are at a much lower risk of having it stolen. The most important thing is not to delay. Every
day without theft protection is another day when you could be victimized.
