The Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security's Identity Crimes Unit is offering the following tips:

  • Don't allow clerks to put your receipts in your bag, but rather carry them in your wallet.
  • Watch cashiers, waiters and bartenders, ensuring that they don't "skim" or save your card number for later use.
  • Check your bank statements, credit card bills and credit reports often to avoid any efforts to use your identity.
