What is Identity Theft Identity Theft is when someone steals your drivers license, credit card number or any other form of private identity information.
How to avoid Identity Theft Don’t put your social security number on personal identification and don’t carry it around. When you discard credit cards be sure to destroy them. If you don’t people can find them and use them. Review your credit report once a year and if you see suspicious activity contact your creditors. Write “photo ID required” in the signature spot. That way the thief will have a harder time purchasing items.
