POLICE BEAT

Pick up the paper every Friday to read the Public Safety call log and learn ways to protect yourself and your belongings
Safety Tip of the Week: Here are some safety tips from Director Christensen of Public Safety.
Credit Card Security precautions:
The fraudulent use of credit cards is not limited to the loss or theft of actual credit cards. A capable criminal only needs to know your credit card number to make numerous charges, including cash withdrawals against your account.
* It is a good idea to copy both front and back of all your credit cards and keep the copies in a safe and secure location. This will enable you to cancel your credit cards as soon as possible if they are lost or stolen.
* Endorse all credit cards as soon as they arrive and carry the minimum number of cards that you actually need.
* Unless you are sure you are dealing with a reputable company, never give your credit card number over the phone.
* There is a current scam in operation around the country. This involves the con artist asking to verify your credit card number in order to win a prize. The thief informs the victims that if their Visa card begins with the number four, the victim wins a prize, however all Visa cards begin with the number four and all Master cards begin with the number five. The victim is asked to produce personal information including their credit card number. The only prize that the victim gets is a fraudulent charge on their bill.
If you are a victim of a crime, call the Department of Public Safety at 305-284-6666 or if calling from a campus phone dial 8-6666.
