So first, let’s talk about what identity fraud means: it’s that unfortunate situation when someone steals your personal information to use it for his/her own benefit, which can end up really damaging your finances if that person decides to open credit cards with your personal info or stuff like that.

If your identity has been stolen, how do we find that out?

First, go to credit card charges to check if there are any charges that may surprise you, but you can also identify identity fraud by receiving a debt-collection call or if you notice that your credit scores has gone down. So in order to act quickly in case of identity fraud, make sure you check your bank statements regularly!

We may still suffer from identity theft, but there are ways make it less likely to happen. Here are a few tips:

  • Use safe passwords
  • Be careful what you share online
  • Don’t give out your information easily
  • Get a shredder
  • Follow your instincts
  • Check often your credit reports
