Credit card fraud can occur when someone steals a carbon or copy of your credit card information and uses without your permission. Some of the steps you can take to protect yourself are: o Never leave copies or carbons of credit card receipts. o Exercise caution over which websites you use your credit card on. o Never give out your credit card number on the telephone to someone who called you with a solicitation. o Make a copy of the front and back of all credit cards you have and keep them in a secure place. If you ever loose a card, immediately call and cancel it. o Order periodic credit reports to look for signs of credit card fraud.
