Identity Theft | The Frugalista

Identity Theft

by frugalista on June 29, 2008

I ran across this article from a New York Post writer who tore up a credit card application, taped it back together, mailed it to American Express and GOT APPROVED. OMG! I am shocked and outraged. Yes, I do own a paper shredder. Trust, I put it to good use. The article convinces me that everyone should own and use a paper shredder. I write this blog because I believe in being financially fit. Sometimes it’s not just about cutting expenses. You have to go the extra mile to protect your finances/credit score. What’s the point of having money in the bank if you can’t protect it?

Do you use a paper shredder for financial documents? How do you protect your finances? What do you do with your credit card applications that come in the mail?

P.S. I posted this on Sunday night to carry us through Monday. I’m traveling all day Monday, so I posted a little early.
