Millions of people each year fall victim to identity theft or military scams of some kind. If you fall prey, it can cost you money, time and lots of stress. It happens when you let your guard down. Safeguard your Social Security number, military ID and other sensitive data. Some ways to help to prevent identity theft include: checking your credit, keeping anti-virus and anti-spyware updated, changing your passwords regularly and keeping them private, don’t give out personal information unless you initiate contact, don’t open or respond to phishing emails and destroy personal information when you dispose of mail or electronic items.
