Identity Theft: Rapid Response Tips
Keep records of your calls and copies of all documents for use if and/or when issues arise.
Minimum Payments on Credit Cards
Be sure to check for interest and try to occasionally pay more than the minimum payment.
Be careful when it comes to paying back loans and make sure you will be able to pay them back on time so you aren't paying more than is necessary.
Places such as banks or credit unions will not ask for a fee in advance of a loan. If you pay a fee in advance of your loan it is most likely a rip off.
Be careful when attempting to help the community. Watch for red flags such as donations in cash.
