Safeguarding your financial information can help prevent identity theft and fraud.
Victims of identity theft can contact the three major credit bureaus (Experian, Equifax, and TransUnion) and put a fraud alert on their credit report as well as freeze their credit. This can prevent further damage to your credit report and preclude fraudsters from opening up new accounts with your personal information.
Credit card fraud is one of the most common types of financial security breaches. Reviewing your account transactions often, creating intricate and different passwords for all of your accounts, and keeping an eye on your credit report can all fight inappropriate use of your personal information.
