Saving Contact Info
You can do a lot to ensure that your wallet never gets stolen, but the unfortunate fact is it happens every day. If it happens to you, you’re going to need to cancel your credit and debit cards as soon as possible. To prepare to make such a situation as painless as possible, go to your home printer. Take everything out of your wallet, and photocopy both sides of every card, piece of ID, and whatever other important information you keep in your wallet. That way, you’ll have immediate access to all their customer service and identity theft prevention phone numbers in one easy place. Keep this sheet someplace safe in case you ever need it!
Bring Only What You Need
When traveling, try to bring as little sensitive information and as few valuables with you as possible. For example, keeping your social security card in your wallet is definitely not a good idea. Also, if you’re carrying a passport you won’t need to bring your driver’s license. Traveler’s checks are a great way to protect against losing money in the event of a lost or stolen wallet. You can also pay using an easily-replaceable credit card, and RFID blocking wallets can reduce the chances of its information being stolen without your knowledge.
