Wheelnanddealin Presents GOOD ADVICE ON IDENTITY THEFT PREVENTION
GOOD ADVICE ON IDENTITY THEFT PREVENTION

-ATTORNEY'S ADVICE-----NO CHARGE

A corporate attorney sent the following out to the employees in his
company.

1. The next time you order checks have only your initials (instead
of first name) and last name put on them. If someone takes your checkbook,
they will not know if you sign your checks with just your initials or your
first name, but your bank will know how you sign your checks.

2. Do not sign the back of your credit cards. Instead, put "PHOTO
ID REQUIRED".

3. When you are writing checks to pay on your credit card accounts,
DO NOT put the complete account number on the "For" line. Instead, just put
the last four numbers. The credit card company knows the rest of the
number, and anyone who might be handling your check as it passes through all
the check-processing channels will not have access to it.

4. Put your work phone # on your checks instead of your home phone.
If you have a PO Box, use that instead of your home address. If you do not
have a PO Box, use your work address. Never have your SS# printed on your
checks, (DUH!). You can add it if it's necessary. However, if you
have it printed, anyone can get it.

5. Place the contents of your wallet on a photocopy machine. Do
both sides of each license, credit card, etc. You will know what you had in
your wallet and all of the account numbers and phone numbers to call
and cancel.
Keep the photocopy in a safe place. Also carry a photocopy of your
passport when traveling either here or abroad. We have all heard
horror stories about fraud that is committed on us in stealing a name, address,
Social Security number, credit cards.

6. When you check out of a hotel that uses cards! for! keys (and
they all seem to do that now), do not turn the "keys" in. Take them with you
and destroy them. Those little cards have on them all of the information
you gave the hotel, including address and credit card numbers and
expiration dates. Someone with a card reader, or employee of the hotel, can
access all that information with no problem whatsoever.

Unfortunately, as an attorney, I have first hand knowledge because my
wallet was stolen last month. Within a week, the thieve(s) ordered
an expensive monthly cell phone package, applied for a VISA credit card, had a
credit line approved to buy a Gateway computer and received a PIN number
from DMV to change my driving record information online. Here is some
critical information to limit the damage in case this happens to you
or someone you know:

1. We have been told we should cancel our credit cards immediately.
The key is having the toll free numbers and your card numbers handy so you
know whom to call. Keep those where you can find them.

2. File a police report immediately in the jurisdiction where your
credit cards, etc., were stolen. This proves to credit providers you were
diligent, and this is a first step toward an investigation (if there
ever is one). However, here is what is perhaps most important of all (I
never even thought to do this.)

3. Call the three national credit reporting organizations
immediately to place a fraud alert on your name and Social Security number. I had
never heard of doing that until advised by a bank that called to tell me an
application for credit was made over the Internet in my name. The
alert means any company that checks your credit knows your information was
stolen, and they have to contact you by phone to authorize new
credit. By the time I was advised to do this, almost two weeks after the theft, all the
damage had been done. There are records of all the credit checks initiated
by the thieves' purchases, none of which I knew about before placing the
alert. Since then, no additional damage has been done, and the thieves threw
my wallet away this weekend (someone turned it in). It seems to have
stopped them dead in their tracks.

Now, here are the numbers you always need to contact about your
wallet and contents being stolen:

1.) Equifax: 1-800-525-6285
2.) Experian (formerly TRW): 1-888-397-3742
3.) Trans Union: 1-800-680-7289
4.) Social Security Administration (fraud line): 1-800-269-0271
