What . . . ? I didn't make these transactions! Someone stole my identity!
Well what did you do today?
When Could this have happened?
Well . . . some jerk bumped into me at the mall . . . I guess he could have took my wallet . . .
Then I bought a newspaper with my card . . . what if the machine stored my information long enough for someone to steal it!
Maybe it wasn't even my fault . . . what if that dentist I went to 10 years ago threw out records with my social security information on it!
Yes, be aware of where your cards are and invest in a wallet that protects from scimmers, make sure your card information compleatly clears before leaving a store, and then be aware of what places have your social security.
you need to report this to your bank and the 3 three main credit bureaus, Equifax, Experian and TransUnion. you will only be liable for $50.00
Okay. is there anything i can do to protect myself in the future?
