Use Common Sense!!

Don't buy into a "service" to prevent ID theft! Be smart and keep your Social Security card in a safe since you only need to show it a few times in your lifetime, but that number is a goldmine to ID thieves. Birth certificate ,passport, marriage certificate and divorce papers should be locked up, too. Do not give out your Social Security number to someone who calls you or posts some e-mail message saying they need the information.  If you call a bank, they may ask for your Social Security number and that is okay. Don't throw any papers that have any secure information on them in the trash without shredding them first.
