After the holidays we are always left with piles of bills and receipts from all the December madness. It’s a new year and many people are working on getting better organized, cleaning out desks drawers and closets. It also happens to be tax season, so the amount of paperwork and receipts is further amplified. If you’re like me, you feel like you are swimming in paper work right now.
Identity thieves are sneaky, stealing credit card payments and other outgoing mail from private, curbside mailboxes. They even dig through garbage cans or communal dumpsters in search of anything from cancelled checks, credit card and bank statements, and preapproved credit card, mortgage and insurance offers.
Protect Your Identity with a Few Simple Steps
Take steps to opt out of all unsolicited credit card offers.
Switch to online banking and bill payment options, and suppress the paper copy of your bank statement and bills.
Destroy all offers for credit, and any documents which contain your personal information.
Shred old credit cards, as well as document which contain personal information. It’s critical that you stay safe this year by using a shredder to properly dispose of bills and protect your identity.
