Take Steps to Protect Your Identity
Identity theft is one of the fastest growing crimes in America. The Burnsville Police Department has several tips for protecting yourself and advice on what to do if you suspect you have been the victim of identity theft.

Some of these simple actions can help prevent identity theft:
  1. Purchase a shredder to shred personal documents
  2. Be aware of email and phone scams
  3. Protect your Social Security Number
  4. Install a locked mailbox
  5. Carry only what you need in your wallet

If you suspect your credit card, driver's license or other personal information has been stolen take some immediate steps to limit the damage a thief can do:
  1. Report the issue to the three major credit bureaus
  2. File a police report
  3. Contact your creditors and financial institutions
  4. Keep a journal of who you spoke with and what was said
