10 Ways To Protect Yourself From Identity Theft

Why do you need to even change your name? I bet you have not even really thought about it right? As usual (as with most things in your life) you are just changing your name because everyone is doing likewise – or maybe because your family says you should, or maybe because everyone else expects you to do so – or whatever.

Every landlord-tenant relationship must begin with the same thing: a thorough application. Get a form application online, at Office Depot, or from your nearby landlord association. Just make sure that the application asks for the applicant’s full name, driver’s license number, social security number, and the last five years of home addresses. Most importantly, verify the information. Make the tenant show you his driver’s license and social security card replacement. This information will also help out collection efforts later should you wind up getting a money judgment against the tenant.

Don’t give personal information out to callers. Even if a call from your bank of financial institution seems legitimate, don’t give them information.

Do not carry them in your wallet, or that will have been a complete waste of your time.

Keep credit cards that you don’t use often at home. Unless you are headed out to make a purchase with that emergency credit card, there’s no need to take it with you. Instead, leave it behind in a safe place. That way it will still be available in case of the emergency of you having your wallet lost or stolen.

I’ve often seen profiles of people that also list each member of their family, their photographs, and other identifying information. These social media sites are extremely popular these days, so there are lots of predators that can study each profile. All they have to do is become a member and start searching!

Face it America, we are not obtaining freedom through the war we are in. We are deceived by our own government. We are blind to it’s devices. Ultimately we will be backed against a wall with no where to go. Once upon a time America was free. Our foundations were solid. We stood for honesty, integrity and truth. Although, individually we have these qualities because it’s just the American way, they are slowly being ripped apart by our leaders.
