Concerns about identify theft?
I’m loving your blog and have started applying for and getting new credit cards for a trip to Europe next fall. So, with your additional credit cards, are you concerned about fraud and/or identify theft? Seems to me, the more cards you have, the more at risk you become. Would love to hear your perspective on this topic. Thanks.
Love the blog and have started applying for and receiving four new credit cards. However, with as many cards as you have, are you concerned about fraud and/or identify theft? Seems to me that the more information you have out there, the more susceptible you are to theft. Thanks.
I think your risk doesn’t really increase that much. I assume you keep all your cards safely together at home. So if someone finds one they’re going to find them all. Similarly if someone gets your card information from a transaction they would only get one credit card number. In general it is good practice to review your credit card information regularly, at least the monthly statements and in general card companies are good about not holding customers responsible for fraud.
