Safeguarding Your Financial Information and Identity

Use Low Credit Limit Credit Cards

When you purchase items online (or even offline) consider using a credit card that has a relatively low spending limit. For example, if the limit on the card is $300, identity thieves (or dishonest salespeople) can only spend up to $300 if they steal your card information.

You may also consider only using one specific credit card for online purchases. While you should always check your credit card statements for accuracy, pay special attention to the statements for the card you use online; that way you can quickly spot any unauthorized or fraudulent activity and take steps to minimize the impact.
