  2. Avoid carrying any cards with your Social Security Number, and don’t write your SSN on your checks.
  3. Get your mail as soon as possible after delivery or use a lockable mailbox.
  4. Take ATM and other receipts with you when making purchases.
  5. Keep an eye on your credit card at all times or pay with cash.
