Prevent Identity Theft

Help yourself from becoming a victim of identity theft: Do
not keep anything in your wallet/purse with your Social Security number on it. This includes your Social Security card, old Medicare cards, or your group health insurance card. The newest Medicare cards only contain the last 4 digits of your SS number.

Prevent Identity Theft

My daughter literally had the rural newspaper deliveryman take her credit card bill out of her mailbox, copy the numbers put the bill back the next night and use the card numbers. He had done this at several homes that he delivered the paper to. So the warning is do not leave mail in your mailbox overnight. The man spent 18 months in jail and the newspaper that he worked for would not even report it in their paper nor take any accountability for his actions in fact while he was in jail, his wife delivered the newspapers. The police discovered that he had several post office boxes in different names so that he could receive the merchandise from the stolen cards that he used to order through mailorder catalogs.
