Tip of the Month – Guard Against Identity Theft

Last year, 8.1 million people were victims of identity theft in the US which cost Americans nearly $37 billion.  That’s ridiculous.  But there are some simple things you can do to guard yourself against identity theft.  Here are three ways:

1.) Get a Copy of your Free Credit Report – each year you are entitled to a free copy of your credit report from each of the three credit bureaus
2.) Opt-Out of Pre-Approved Credit Card Offers – lower your junk mail and the risk that identity thieves will get your personal information
3.) Sign up for an Identity Monitoring Service – While it costs money for these services, they can help protect you against identity theft and fraud
