This Bears Repeating

November 29th, 2006 at 07:49 pm

I know, you've heard this a hundred times. But with recent news stories about credit card fraud (I'm assuming the number of fraud cases goes up during the holidays, thus the number of news stories on credit card fraud goes up - good assumption?).

Anyway... SHRED those credit card offers!!! Many fraud cases begin with a credit card offer that you received in the mail and discarded. Your best protection against this type of fraud is to shred the offer and application so no-one can use it to commit fraud in the first place.

An even better strategy would be to quit getting credit card offers (unless you want them of course). You can opt out by going to www.optout-prescreen.com or by calling 1-888-567-8688.

May you have a safe and fraud-free holiday!

    I get so many I got tired of shredding them. Now I just put them aside and throw them out when the expiration date is passed.

    Don't forget to call to OPT OUT. Every little bit helps.
