1. Do not sign the back of your credit cards. Instead, put "PHOTO ID
2. When you are writing checks to pay on your credit card Accounts, DO
put the complete account number on the "For" line. Instead, just put
last four numbers. The credit card company knows the rest of the
and anyone who might be handling your check as it passes through all
check processing channels won't have access to it.
3. Put your work phone # on your checks instead of your home Phone. If
have a PO Box use that instead of your home address. If you do not have
PO Box, use your work address. Never have your SS# printed on your

anyone can get it.

wallet and all of the account numbers and phone numbers to Call and

monthly cell phone package, applied for a VISA credit card, had A
line approved to buy a Gateway computer, received a PIN number From DMV
change my driving record information online, and more. But here's some
critical information to limit the damage in case this happens to you or
someone you know:

key is having the toll free numbers and your card Numbers handy so you

6. File a police report immediately in the jurisdiction where your
cards, etc., were stolen. This proves to credit Providers you were

But here's what is perhaps most important of all: (I never even thought

to tell me an application for credit was made over The Internet in my
The alert means any company that checks your Credit knows your

By the time I was advised to do this, almost two weeks after the theft,
the damage had been done. There are records of all the Credit checks
initiated by the thieves' purchases, none of which I knew about before
placing the alert. Since then, no additional damage has been done, and
thieves threw my wallet away this weekend (someone turned it in). It

My attorney husband had his wallet stolen a couple of months ago. What a nightmare!!! He read the list and said he did all of it but make copies of his wallet. He did it the next day. He called to get a replacement health card for Alana, my step daughter, and they sent a new one with Alamo as her name. Now of course Healthnet won't pay for anything with Alana on it!
Don't leave several kids to do face painting when you have a migraine of bad sx, in the house or out. I had paint everywhere! I think any art projects are going to have to be when I feel well enough to supervise closely.
Don't drive without a map and phone number on tx.
Lock yourself away from others when Riba rage hits.
Your right never leave the kids to face paint by them selves especially when you have oil base acrylic paint in the shed.However your kids will match the house quite beautifully.
And the number one thing to never do never give out your social security to the guy at the lottery stand make him guess your lucky number and tell him he's wrong even when he gets it right. And if you end up talking like the two old ladies on the identity theft comercails then chances are you and Jeff Foxworthy are rednecks. Thank you very much and don't hate me because I am young and beautiful and undergoing tx.
Hi Guys, Hope you are all having a good weekend! I have plans to go to a festival with a bunch of kids tonite, luckily I feel good! Just my ol' tired self. Can't wait for Halloween to show off my witch like hair!
I have heard there was going to be wind for days, hasn't been any around here. Those oak leaves are clogging up my pool though. Can man, how are you at unclogging a pump? It is beautiful here, great for a pool party.
You guys should have seen the trouble my husband was in when I sent him down to supervise the clean up of the paint. He says, "OKAY" only to head to his office. These kids had paint on the new beige wall to wall, the oriental carpets, the walls, the doors, railings, patio and table and chairs, the bathroom was a totally different color. The tub is still being scrubbed after weeks. I keep seeing spots of color everywhere I go in the house. OOOOhhhhh you can imagine what I put hubby through, he is still recovering.
