Five Ways to Help Protect Your Identity
Protecting your identity is one of the most important things you can do for yourself, as well as for your family. There are a number of ways that people can be victimized by identity thieves and not even know about it. For example, your purse or wallet can be taken and used to take out cash, check accounts, and other personal information. If you are careful to protect your personal information with passwords and security devices at work and at home, but are careless to save it in a public place such as your computer or your purse, you can end up being the next victim of identity theft.
