Holiday shopping for many is a time of joy and some stress
to complete everything in time.
However, it's also a time of the year when identity theft
opportunity significantly increases for most people.
Here's how you can help decrease your potential to
become the latest identity theft victim.
Do not use your ATM card in retail shops if that card
also doubles as a Mastercard or Visa.
Credit card liability, due to theft or unauthorized
purchases, is usually limited to only $50.
However, ATM losses can be unlimited!
So, instead of handing over your ATM card which
has that linked Visa or Mastercard account - pay
cash or use your straight credit card only.
Then, finally make sure to get your copy of the
purchase receipt from the sales clerk.
