White collar crime

identicication and prevention

identification

        Money begins to decrease within your accounts. Banks and other sources begin to call with notice of payments, and you have never seen, been, or even heard of these certain banks or companies. Retirement funds, home equity, and saving accounts begin to drain. These criminals want nothing more then money, people need to keep watchful eye on their finances to lower their chances of being attacked.

prevention

Use cash instead of credit cards, these cards hold information that has the ability to be compromised. Never trust anyone who comes to your door and claims to be “professional.” Often people may want to have some type of proof of the person’s professional backgrounds. Never entrust someone with the personal information that should be private, such as a social security, or credit card numbers. These steps aren’t 100% effective, but this will lower your chances of identity theft substantially.
