Protect Your Identity Watch Your Mail
Shredding important documents is the best way to protect your personal information... but what if you never receive those documents? Some identity thieves steal mail in order to get access to account numbers and other personal identification. One way to safeguard your mail on a daily basis is to install a locked mailbox; the mail carrier can insert mail into a slot, but the box requires a key to be opened. If that sounds like over-kill, at the very least have your mail held at your local post office or ask someone you know well and trust to collect and hold your mail if you are traveling. An overflowing mailbox is an easy target for an identity thief.
