International Association of Chiefs of Police and Bank of America Offer Identity Crime Prevention Tips for the Summer of 2008
SECURITY PLAN FOR THE SUMMER:
Take Stock – know what personal information you have on your person and on your cell phone
Scale Down – keep only what personal information you need for the day (work or play).
Lock It – protect the personal information that you leave at home or in your vehicle.
Pitch It – properly dispose (shred) of what you no longer need – receipts, applications, employment forms, medical EOB’s etc.
Plan Ahead – create a plan to respond to a loss of personal identity. (#1 file a report with police)
