We Must Not Forget Older Methods of ID Theft

These days, everyone has been indoctrinated to believe that ID theft can only occur over the Internet. But let us not forget some older (yet still effective) methods of ID theft. Fraudsters can victimize individuals if their wallet, credit card, or chequebook has been stolen or lost. Also, there has been a resurgence of telephone fraud powered by VoIP and there is still a threat, albeit small, that you can lose your identity through postal mail. Everyone should keep important cards out of our wallet and in a safe place as well as report lost or stolen credit cards immediately. Those are just a few tips on how to secure your world in addition to protecting your digital assets.
