*How to Protect Your Wallet & Your Identity"

In light of recent events made aware to me today, I've decided to publicize warnings to protect your "wallet" and your identity. Identity theft has become an uncontrollable problem in recent years. People all over the world know someone who has had their personal information stolen. At first, people believe that it will not affect them to the fullest, but you're wrong! Once your identity has been stolen, people may access any personal accounts and wipe you out completely. If you have a large sum of money in your accounts, make sure you talk to you bank about IDENTITY THEFT PROTECTION. This will allow protection from any unwanted activities. Most banks  notify the individual once "suspicious" activity has been seen on their accounts. If a large sum of money is withdrawn without notification, your bank may freeze your account. This is only to protect the individual and their assets. It's in your best interest to beware of any suspicious individuals or activities. If you're paying for something at any location and the clerk asks to see your card, you have the right to show them your identification, but not your way of pay. Tell them in a polite manner that you would like to speak to their manager and make them aware of the situation. The person may attempt to copy your personal information. Next, look around you for any suspicious devices or people. If you notice anything out of the ordinary, hide your card. DON'T ALLOW YOURSELF TO BECOME A VICTIM. For more information, google IDENTITY THEFT PROTECTION!
