8 Things Not To Keep In Wallet - Yahoo Finance

8 Things Not to Keep
in Your Wallet



That overstuffed wallet of yours can’t be comfortable to sit
on. It’s probably even too clunky to lug around in a purse, too.


And with every new bank slip that bulges from the seams,
your personal information is getting less and less safe. With just your name
and Social Security number, identity thieves can open new credit accounts and
make costly purchases in your name. If they can get their hands on (and doctor)
a government-issued photo ID, they can do even more damage, such as opening new
bank accounts.


These days, con artists are even profiting from tax-return
fraud and health-care fraud, all with stolen IDs.


We talked with
consumer-protection advocates to identify the eight things you should purge
from your wallet immediately to limit your risk in case your wallet is lost or
stolen.


And when you’re finished removing your wallet’s biggest
information leaks, take a moment to photocopy everything you’ve left inside,
front and back. Stash the copies in a secure location at home or in a
safe-deposit box. The last thing you want to be wondering as you're reporting a
stolen wallet is, “What exactly did I have in there?”


1. Your Social
Security Card......and anything with the number on it.



Your nine-digit Social Security number is all a savvy ID
thief needs to open new credit card accounts or loans in your name. ID-theft
experts say your Social Security card is the absolute worst item to carry
around.


Once you’ve removed your card, look for anything else that
may contain your SSN. As of December 2005, states can no longer display your
SSN on newly issued driver's licenses, state ID cards and motor-vehicle
registrations. If you still have an older photo ID, request a new card prior to
the expiration date. There might be an additional fee, but it's worth it to
protect your identity.


Retirees, pull out your Medicare card, too, because it has
your SSN on it. Instead: Photocopy your Medicare card (front and back), black
out the last four digits of your SSN on the copy, and carry it with you instead
of your real card.


2. Password Cheat
Sheet



The average American uses at least seven different passwords
(and probably should use even more to avoid repeating them on multiple
sites/accounts). Ideally, each of those passwords should be a unique
combination of letters, numbers, and symbols, and you should change them
regularly. Is it any wonder we need help keeping track of them all?


However, carrying your ATM card’s PIN number and a
collection of passwords (especially those for online access to banking and
investment accounts) on a scrap of paper in your wallet is a prescription for
financial disaster.


Instead: If you have to keep passwords jotted down
somewhere, keep them in a locked box in your house. Or consider an encrypted
mobile app, such as SplashID ($9.95; Android, Blackberry, iPad, iPhone),
Password Safe Pro (free, Android only) or Pocket (free, Android only).


3. Spare Keys


A lost wallet containing your home address (likely found on
your driver's license or other items) and a spare key is an invitation for
burglars to do far more harm than just opening a credit card in your name.
Don't put your property and family at risk. (And even if your home isn't robbed
after losing a spare key, you'll likely spend $100+ in locksmith fees to change
the locks for peace of mind.)


Instead: Keep your spare keys with a trusted relative or
friend. If you’re ever locked out, it may take a little bit longer to retrieve
your backup key, but that’s a relatively minor inconvenience.


4. Checks


Blank checks are an obvious risk—an easy way for thieves to
quickly withdraw money from your checking account. But even a lost check you've
already filled out can lead to financial loss—perhaps long after you've
canceled and forgotten about it. With the routing and account numbers on your
check, anybody could electronically transfer funds from your account.


Instead: Only carry paper checks when you will absolutely
need them. And leave the checkbook at home, bringing only the exact amount of
checks you anticipate needing that day.


5. Passport


A government-issued photo ID such as a passport opens up a
world of possibilities for an ID thief. “Theives would love to get (ahold of)
this,” says Nikki Junker, a victim adviser at the Identity Theft Resource
Center. “You could use it for anything”—including traveling in your name,
opening bank accounts or even getting a new copy of your Social Security card.


Instead: Carry only your driver’s license or other personal
ID while traveling inside the United States. When you're overseas, photocopy
your passport and leave the original in a hotel lockbox.


6. Multiple Credit
Cards






Although you shouldn’t ditch credit cards altogether (those
who regularly carry a card tend to have higher credit scores than those who
don’t), consider a lighter load. After all, the more cards you carry, the more
you’ll have to cancel if your wallet is lost or stolen. We recommend carrying a
single card for unplanned or emergency purchases, plus perhaps an additional
rewards card on days when you expect to buy gas or groceries.


Also: Maintain a list, someplace other than your wallet,
with all the cancellation numbers for your credit cards. They are typically
listed on the back of your cards, but that won’t do you much good when your
wallet is nowhere to be found.


7. Birth Certificate


The birth certificate itself won’t get ID thieves very far.
However, “birth certificates could be used in correlation with other types of
fraudulent IDs,” Junker says. “Once you have those components, you can do the
same things you could with a passport or a Social Security card.”


Be especially cautious on occasions—such as your mortgage
closing—when you may need to present your birth certificate, Social Security
card and other important personal documents at once. “Everything’s together,”
Junker notes, “and someone can just come along and steal them all. Take the
time to take them home, and don’t leave them in your car.”


8. A Stack of
Receipts



Beginning in December 2003, businesses may not print
anything containing your credit or debit card’s expiration date or more than
the last five digits of your credit card number. Still, a crafty ID thief can
use the limited credit card info and merchant information on receipts to phish
for your remaining numbers.


Instead: Clear those receipts out each night, shredding the
ones you don’t need. But for receipts you save, keep them safe by going
digital. Apps such as Lemon and Shoeboxed create and categorize digital copies
of your receipts and business cards.

AKSAFEONE -- well there is possibly a fine line between feeding fear and being just plain smart -

It continues to amaze me why people are so set on living a criminal life and how modern technology is making it so easy for them --

With gadgets as little as $100 criminal minds can rob you with out even breaking into your car your home or your pockets -

Sad thing is -- I carry everything that was mentioned except for the passport - and would be if it was here -- lol -- I am in the process of changing my mind and doing things much differently to be safer -

I hope folks will do the same -- or at least do "something" to protect their privacy and wealth - UNEEK
