Sign your cards as soon as they arrive.

Carry your cards separately from your wallet, in a zippered compartment.

Keep a record of your account numbers, their expiration dates, and the phone number and address of each company in a secure place.

Keep an eye on your card during the transaction, and get it back as quickly as possible.

Void incorrect receipts.

Destroy carbon copies.

Save receipts to compare with billing statements.

Open bills promptly and reconcile accounts monthly, just as you would your checking account.

Report any questionable charges promptly to the card issuer.

Notify card companies in advance of a change in address.

IT is important to remember to not give your credit card to anyone.

Never leave credit cards or receipts lying around.

Never give out your account number over the phone.
