March 6-12, 2016, is National Consumer Protection Week, which means it's time to revisit the precautions you're taking in both your digital and non-digital life to keep your personal information safe. The average number of U.S. identity fraud victims annually is over 12 million.* Help keep your identity safe by being S.M.A.R.T.
SHRED personal information. Identity thieves are known to go "dumpster diving" to find papers with personal information. Shredding papers that contain your name, address, Social Security number, bank account, or other personal information helps keep it safe.
MAKE sure you have updated anti-virus software. Viruses and malware are common ways for identity thieves to obtain personal information stored on your computer.
AVOID disclosing personal information on social media. Social media is great for keeping our friends informed, but identity thieves can use that information to piece together your identity.
REPORT any unsolicited emails that are suspicious. Don't download or click on links that ask you for personal information. These fraudulent emails are called "phishing" scams. Help shut them down by reporting to FTCComplaintAssistant.gov.
THINK before you shop. Make sure you shop online only at reputable websites. Look for websites that begin with https://, which indicates a secure connection.
