Sign your credit cards immediately after you receive them. Throw away any credit cards you don't use.

The most important things you can do to safeguard your credit:

1) Buy a shredder
•All of those credit card applications you get in the mail.
•Any credit card receipts.
•Paystubs, bank statement, and bank deposit receipts.
•Utility bill stubs.
•Old tax returns.
•Anything containing your SSN number.

2) Pull Your Credit Report at Least Once a Year

3) Secure Your Paperwork~ Buy a file cabinet and LOCK it or rent a safety deposit box~This will protect you from family fraud.

4) Get Your Name Off Mailing Lists~ The less paperwork being sent to your house with "preapproved" credit cards, the better. Some identity thieves don't wait for those applications to get into the trash, they steal them right out of your mailbox.
