Protecting yourself against Identity theft

We are living more of our lives online than before and facing significant challenges associated with managing and protecting our personal information. Our financial properties are more vulnerable to cyber-attacks nowadays regarding our personal data. Fraudsters will hack into a variety of computer systems from banks to retail chains in order to steal credit card, personal and bank information.

In times past, people just worried about having their purse or wallet stolen. Now electronic payment methods, like tapping credit and debit cards, on-line purchases and using smart phones does help facilitate the rise in fraud. Fraud comes in many different forms and the threat of fraud is constant. You should be aggressive in protecting yourself against fraud.

Here are some tips to protect your personal information:

1)Use secure websites and make sure that the URL start with “https”.
2)Use reputable payment processors.
3)Shred all personal documents before throwing away.
4)Create usernames and passwords that are difficult to guess.
5)Be extremely cautious about what information you share online.
Can someone guess your passwords by the information you share on-line? People are creatures of habit and fraudsters know this.
6)Do not open e-mails that are from an unknown source.
7)Phishing schemes are the most common type of identity theft.
The thief tricks you into giving up your personal identifying information. This can occur through phone call, text message, social networks, e-mails. Do not give out any personal information to anyone you do not know. The fraudsters can be very convincing and even threatening at times to get you to give up information. Do not be afraid to hang up on someone and call the company back through the phone numbers you have. Government departments and your bank will not request personal information from you through e-mail or phone. Your credit card company will already have your card information.

8)Check your bank and credit card statement regularly for discrepancies.

9)Be cautious in your investments
It is easy to get sucked into investment schemes. Offers of “guaranteed” returns of 14 to 25 per cent with “no risk” are enticing. Investors should always be skeptical of anyone offering a risk-free investment with an unusually high return. You should look very carefully at every investment you make, but also to listen to your gut. If something doesn’t make sense, or doesn’t feel right, quit right away or contact the right organization.
