Security freeze on your credit
Identity theft cases are on the rise and that means your risk of being a victim is also up.
Consumer Affairs says placing a security freeze on your credit is a low-cost way to protect against ID theft.
All three credit reporting agencies; Experian, Equifax and Trans Union, all make it simple for you to place security freezes on your credit reports.
The typical fee is about $10 per credit reporting agency, for a total of $30.
