5 Tips for Preventing Identity Theft During Black Friday Shopping

5 Tips for Preventing Identity Theft During Black Friday Shopping

There are an overwhelming number of individuals who are excitedly waiting for Black Friday shopping deals without considering ways in which they can protect themselves. Unfortunately, during the most joyous time of year, your identity and personal information become even more vulnerable than usual. We want you to enjoy your Black Friday shopping without a worry in the world, which is why we have gathered these 5 important tips for preventing identity theft during the holiday season:

  1. Since many stores are forced to hire seasonal help during this time, you must expect that not all of these employees are loyal to the company and to their customers. As a result, it is important that you are extra cautious.
  2. Make sure to always block the keypad when you are entering your PIN or zip code during a transaction.
  3. Try to only shop with one card so that you can easily detect any fraudulent charges.
  4. If possible, always slide the card yourself to ensure that a seasonal employee is not scanning your card in a card reader.
  5. Most importantly, always remain aware of your surroundings and report any suspicious activity (even by employees) immediately.

  • “When we want develop partnerships with vendors, the deciding factor is always based on a single question…Do they pick up their phone? At Risk Management, they pick up their phone. In the indoor trampoline park industry, we have dealt with several insurance agencies that were always more concerned about their commission, not building a business relationship or serving our needs. On more than one occasion, Risk Management has stepped in and helped us with carrier/policies issues that the incumbent agencies had dropped the ball on. There was no financial reward for Risk Management in these situations, they see a problem and help fix it. They just do business the right way. Steve Young and his team at Risk Management represent us, not the carrier. We highly recommend Risk Management.”
