Kentucky environmental attorney Sanders offers some tips on preventing identity theft.

Some tips to prevent identity theft:

• Do not keep Social Security card in wallet or purse
• Do not put bills or checks in home mailbox for pickup
• Check credit reports, bank statements and credit-card statements often for irregularities
• Shred all documents with personal information
• Never give personal information to someone on the phone, Internet or email claiming to be your bank
• Do not store credit-card numbers on shopping websites

Victims of identity theft may obtain a tool kit from the Office of the Kentucky Attorney General to assist in repairing credit, filing police reports and preparing sworn affidavits. The tool kit is available at www.ag.ky.gov/idtheft or by calling the Office of the Kentucky Attorney General’s Identity Theft Hotline 1-800-804-7556.
