Protect Yourself Against New Account ID Theft

The first defense against any kind of identity theft is to be vigilant about protecting your personal information by taking steps like creating secure passwords, installing anti-virus and anti-malware software, and shredding personal documents. However, if and when someone does steal enough of your information to commit any form of identity theft there is really only one type of identity theft that you can stop before it happens: New account identity theft, where someone opens a new account in your name.
