I guess i was ashamed to come here and tell people how stupid i am (really really stupid) but i found this bit of advice on a site and thought i'd pass it along. some of the stuff is silly but the numbers at the bottom i think are worth jotting down (and calling Silver Bullet). If nothing else you will get a call in the next 90 days if anyone tries to open any type of account/credit card in your name. The only reason i post is because maybe this will help...

ATTORNEY'S ADVICE - NO CHARGE

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

1. Do not sign the back of your credit cards. Instead, put 'PHOTO ID REQUIRED.'
...
2. 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 won't have access to it.

3. 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 is necessary. But if you have It printed, anyone can get it.

4. Place the contents of your wallet on 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.

I also carry a photocopy of my passport when I travel either here or abroad. We've all heard horror stories about fraud that's committed on us in stealing a Name, address, Social Security number, credit cards..


But here's some critical information to limit the damage in case this happens to you or someone you know:

5. We have been told we should cancel our credit cards immediately. But 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.

6.. 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).

But here's what is perhaps most important of all: (I never even thought to do this.)

7. Call the 3 national credit reporting organizations immediately to place a fraud alert on your name and also call the Social Security fraud line 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.

Now, here are the numbers you always need to contact about your wallet, if it has been 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



We pass along jokes on the Internet; we pass along just about everything.
Go to https://www.annualcreditreport.com/cra/index.jsp to get your free credit reports (everybody should do this every year) and see if there is anything suspicious on them. You may want to consider one of the credit monitoring services for a few months (all three credit reporting agencies offer the service, for a fee of course). The rest has been covered in dbikers post above.

I dont understand why people carry their SS card with them. Good luck getting a new number, doesn't happen very often.
We were trying to figure out where one of our cards was compromised when it happened to us. The cc rep said it could have been anywhere. She also said that a hacker stole millions of card numbers from a few “clearing houses” just for kicks and then sold them on the internet. The rep speculated that it would take time for the all those stolen numbers to be used by the criminals. So it could be your number being stolen had nothing to do with how or where you used the cards.

Is it the jeep in your avatar? Take it to the dealer and have the keys unprogrammed. Then have them reprogram any keys you still have.

check you bank accounts for all debit card activity.

have read one of the favorite tricks is for the crook to debit a buck or two to the account to make sure the card still works,,,,then slowly syphon off $$ week after week withdrawing small amounts so as to not raise suspicion on the part of the account holder.

seems many folks do not check the line items on their bank statements on a regular basis.

and i like 2x the advice from dbiker.......two thumbs up

I have all my accounts set up so I receive an e-mail for any transaction that takes place. Have had my credit card compromised twice before I did this. Now if so much as $1 is withdrawn from any of my accounts or charged to my credit card I get an e-mail immediately. This doesn't stop the crooks from accessing your accounts but does minimize the damage by allowing you to alert you banks and credit card companies. I also have fraud protection so I am not responsible for fraudulent charges. Most credit card company's include this with the account.

Why would a gym in Detroit not have cameras? I understand they wouldn't have them in the locker room but parking lot and general areas would be a given. In little Podunk Hillsdale they have them in the gym.

The "lawyer" who wrote those tips is an idiot. This is direct from MasterCard.

What if the card says “Ask for Photo I.D.” in the signature space?
The transaction cannot be processed unless the cardholder’s signature appears in the signature space.
As noted on the cards, they are “not valid unless signed.”

this is also the written policy of Visa.
HOWEVER, i wrote "SEE D.L." on the back of my card. NEVER EVER had a problem. approx 50% of the time i am asked for and show my driver's license and the requester smiles and sez okay. the rest of the time i am NOT asked and the transaction is processed. i don't see the problem anyway because a gasoline pump never checks my signature, just asks for my zip code which in not hard to get it someone stole my wallet/id.

That simply means the merchant is not following the agreement they are required to follow by accepting Visa and Mastercard's cards.

If you were to dispute a charge and had a card that wasn't signed, the merchant loses no matter what.

I had a customer get upset with me once because I didn't ask to see their Id since in the signature line it said see Id. I asked if SEE ID is their signature. They said NO. I then told them that if I went by the credit card companies rules that I would not be able to take their card since it was NOT signed properly. Just made them more pissed at me.
