17 Ways to Avoid Identify Theft on Campus


September 8, 2006   •   Fact checked by Dumb Little Man

Bankrate released a common sense list of things you can do while on campus to reduce the risk of identify theft. I think the most interested part of the article is:

College students face about the same risk of having their identity stolen as the average person — roughly one in 30.

I knew this was happening to people but 1 in 30 is far more than I suspected. People have to be simply ignoring these tips. I will resist the urge for a lecture – you know what you have to do. If you are already secure, make sure your family is. Most of these tips will apply to anyone — even your 90-year old grandmother that has never heard of identity theft (hint, hint).

To read the commentary from Bankrate, here is the story.
