Protect Yourself from Identity Theft

Identity theft is a serious crime which occurs when your personal information is stolen and used to commit fraud or other crimes. You can help deter identity thieves by taking the following steps:

 

  • Shred any documents with personal information or numbers before you discard it.
  • Never click on links sent in unsolicited emails. Use firewalls and anti- spyware on your home computers.
  • Protect your social security number and ask to use another identifier, when possible.
  • Keep your employees’ social security information in a secure place.
