Avoiding Identity Theft

Learn about how you can avoid identity theft.

You can avoid identity theft by taking care to protect your bank statements, credit cards, mail, and ID cards. Thieves target these items and can steal them by taking your wallet or purse, searching through your trash, attacking unsecured computers or wireless networks, and through fraudulent telemarketing calls, among other ways.
