The most reported source of information used to commit identity fraud was a lost/stolen wallet, checkbook or credit card. Do not carry more credit cards than you absolutely need; do not carry PIN numbers or passwords in your purse or wallet; and avoid carrying your Social Security card.
You should leave your Social Security Card in a safe place at home to reduce the risk of identity theft!
