Track Your Transactions

Monitor Purchases

Track credit card or debit purchases and check your bank statements monthly. Report any charges or suspicious transactions immediately to your bank and law enforcement. Take care when writing checks and giving them to strangers. Do business in cash at flea markets, garage sales or in personal sales transactions.

Be sure store clerks verify your identification (ID) – write "check ID" on the back of credit or debit cards, and insist that they verify.
