Safety Tip of the Week: Identity theft is one of the fastest growing crimes in the United States. Students are targets too. Here are some steps you can take to protect yourself from becoming a victim:

* 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.

* Protect your computer password.

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.
