Posted on 04 September 2012 by Total Secure Shredding

Last year, 11.6 million adults fell victim to Identity fraud costing upwards of $37 billion. So, whether or not young adults are among the last to detect Identity Fraud, here are some good pointers to to provide your kids as they head off to college.

  • Keep your computer’s (including your phone’s) operating system up to date
  • Have your students leave critical documents at home if possible. These include Social Security Cards, Passports, and Birth Certificates.
  • Never lend credit cards or debit cards to anyone.
  • Make sure they open and read their mail.
