Please Keep Your Credit Cards Safe.

One of the simplest ways to avoid credit card fraud is by keeping your credit cards safe from thieves.

Place your credit cards in a purse or wallet close to your body where it can’t easily be snatched away.

If you’re shopping in a high traffic area, carry a smaller purse because it’s harder to steal or sneak into.

For both men and women, carry only the one or two credit and debit cards you’ll be using that day.

Leave all your other credit cards at home.

Thieves can take pictures of your credit card with a camera or cell phone, so don’t leave your credit card exposed any longer than necessary.

After you make a purchase put your credit card away immediately.

Confirm you have your credit card back in your possession before you leave the store or restaurant.
