*Don’t give personal information over the phone.

*Guard your mail.

*Do not provide unnecessary personal information.

*Protect your Social Security Number.

*Carry only ID and credit cards actually needed.

*Watch out for promotional scams.

*Check your credit score once a year.

*Make sure you log off computers in public labs.
