As everyone should know a couple of months ago a few credit card services had reportedly been hacked. That means that as many as 10 million customers are at risk. They might not being using your information now but you need to be aware of all activity on your cards. Credit card companies are not putting your account numbers on your bills anymore trying to stop thieves from stealing the number from your mail. One task you should do is take a copy of the front and back of each card in your wallet so you have all the information needed if they do get stolen or lost. Do not carry your social security with you and do not give it to anyone unless they have a legitimate reason for needing it. Make sure you properly discard hard copy documents containing personal information. If you do have your identity stolen the first step is to notify your bank and any other accounts that someone may use fraudulently. File a report with your local police and report the event to the Federal Trade Commission at 1-877-ID-THEFT. Contact all three major credit bureaus to request a credit report, and have a fraud alert or a credit freeze placed on your credit reports to prevent accounts from being opened without your permission.

To put a freeze on your credit report, send a written request by certified mail to the credit bureaus with proper identification, and with the required fee. After receiving the request, the credit bureau must place a freeze within 10 business days of receiving your request and send you a password or PIN to use for making changes to the security freeze.
Tips to safeguard your identity:
· Remove your name from pre-screened credit offers at or call 1-888-567-8688
· Add your telephone number to the National Do Not Call Registry at or call 1-888-382-1222.
· Remove your name from Individual Direct Mail Association Member mailing lists at
· Place an alert on your credit file if you believe you may be a victim of identity theft. Call 1-800-525-6285 or visit
· Request your free credit reports
· Check your Social Security Statement of earnings and benefits each year to make sure no one is using your social security number for employment. Visit to request a copy.
· Avoid using unsecured mailboxes. Promptly remove mail from your mailbox. If you can’t pick up your mail, contact the US Postal Service at 1-800-275-8777 or to request a vacation hold.
· Close any accounts that have been tampered with or opened fraudulently.
· Request an identity theft victim kit from the Attorney General by calling 1-800-804-7556 or download kit online
