Identity Theft

Computer Crime Concept

Identity Theft continues to be a growing problem (see article from Market Watch). Here are some simple things you can do to protect yourself

  • Buy a shredding machine and shred any paperwork that contains account numbers or social security numbers.
  • Review your credit report from any of the credit report companies. Annual Credit is the best place to obtain your credit report.
  • Avoid using ATM machines at locations other than your bank or a nationally recognized bank
  • Use only secure Internet sites when purchasing on line
  • Never carry your social security card
  • Have your social security number removed from your drivers license (this is optional in some states)
  • Purchase identity theft coverage on your homeowner’s policy! Identity theft coverage can be very inexpensive when compared to the alternatives in modern day living. Call us at 330-782-5621 or email us at for more information.
