- Shred financial documents and paperwork with personal information before you discard them.
- Do not carry your Social Security card in your wallet or write your Social Security number on a check.
- Do not give out personal information on the phone, through the mail, or over the Internet unless you know who you are dealing with.

Identity thieves care about one thing — stealing your personal information and selling it to make money. Our sophisticated, real-time, early warning technology monitors various chat rooms across cyberspace for your personal information. In the event that identity theft occurs, you will be assigned a personal caseworker to take you through the resolution process.
Card Patrol monitors personal information on the Internet by searching public databases and chat rooms. It is impossible to ensure all sources of information have been searched; therefore, your reports may not contain or apprise your of all your personal information that may have been compromised.
With 24-hour, daily credit monitoring, you'll be alerted automatically of certain negative changes to your credit. While it can't prevent identity theft, Credit Alert® can greatly reduce its impact by allowing you to minimize the damage. If there are no changes to your credit, you'll even receive a quarterly notification letting you know that nothing has changes. Your initial enrollment in Credit Alert® will be valid for one year with an option to re-enroll at no additional cost!

If no information has been added or changed, then the member will receive a quarterly notification stating that no information has changed within their credit file.
